The preschool program is licensed by the Ohio Department of Education and follows a state approved curriculum that is aligned to the Ohio Early Childhood Content Standards. The goal is to prepare all children for Kindergarten by implementing all five developmental domains; fine/gross motor, communicative, adaptive, cognitive, and social/emotional. In addition to the five developmental domains, children will learn how to compromise, be respectful to others, and problem solve - preschool provides a place where your child can gain a sense of self, explore, play with peers and build confidence. The preschool teachers are licensed by the Ohio Department of Education.
