Technology is here and even our little ones need to be prepared for computers in Kindergarten. We have Computers in all classrooms starting at age 2.5 years with educational software. Preschool Lead Teacher has Bachelors in Early Childhood Education - It is important to have a preschool teacher with a degree in early childhood. A teacher with such a degree will have the knowledge and the background to properly prepare your child for Kindergarten. Our Educational Leadership Team in Education meets annually to discuss the curriculum and to make adjustments as to align more closely with the Ohio Department of Education. We believe it is our job to prepare students to become effective facilitators of learning. We also meet or write to the local Kindergarten teachers requesting their opinions on our goals and objectives.

Preschoolers are eager to learn and interact with their peers and our preschool teachers know how to teach children as they introduce concepts in language, math, science and social skills in an educational yet fun setting. Our teachers also provide plenty of individual attention to support your child's unique needs.

Our program provides a rich classroom environment where children are encouraged to explore and are challenged to learn, while making friends and developing self-confidence. They strengthen not only their cognitive skills but their social skills as well by learning how to share, stand in line and raise their right or perhaps it could be their left hand!

Features:

  • Math and science skills developed with hands-on experiences
  • Thematic units that encourage curiosity, self-direction and confidence
  • Daily language experiences that support literacy and language development
  • Observation-based assessments that demonstrate your child's progress
  • Portfolios that collect your child's work and capture learning
  • Regular communication with teachers so that you are informed

Our Preschool Program is also Public Funded Approved in several counties, Enhanced Program Approved and Early Learning Initiative Approved. It’s important to have a Center that coordinates its efforts with other agencies to ensure high quality of care.
