How old does my child need to be to start Kindergarten?

We currently follow the Connecticut State Department of Education’s guideline: requiring parents to “send their children to kindergarten when they are age-eligible: 5 years old on or before January 1 of any school year”. Additionally, all children entering Kindergarten are tested for “Kindergarten readiness” by a qualified TCA faculty member, including children currently enrolled in our Kiddie College Pre-K program.

Established in 1978, Torrington Christian Academy has been bringing affordable, exceptional faith-based PK-12 education to Litchfield County for over 40 yrs.
