Preschool Program

We believe preschool curriculum should emerge from the interests of the child. For this reason, our teachers spend time observing and interacting with children, making note of the interests that are being expressed in their play and activities, and then planning the environment and activities based on these interests.

Nurture Growth

Through the use of The Creative Curriculum our teachers are able to design a classroom environment where the children form warm relationships with teachers and caregivers, and feel comfortable to explore their environment and make new discoveries.

Challenge Minds

Young children learn best by doing. Children learn through active exploration of their environment. Our teachers plan learning centers consisting of drama, blocks, art, science, table activities, sensory experiences, music and literature. Each learning center is designed to provide developmentally appropriate activities for children.

Enrich Lives

We value each child as an individual and embrace his/her unique contributions to the classroom community.  By doing so, we inspire in them a love of learning that will last a lifetime. Our Preschool curriculum is aligned with Ohio’s Early Learning and Development Standards.
