Early childhood education lays the groundwork for the development of a lifelong learner.
Children develop an excitement for learning through a play-based, multi-sensory approach and meaningful interactions with others. We strive to provide a fun, safe, and exciting culture that encourages students to take risks, problem-solve, and move toward independence. Our program provides learning experiences that incorporate student interests and address individual needs. Additionally, we believe that our relationships with students and families are central to the advancement of each child’s development. Our intent is to build a strong beginning for future learning and empower children to reach their highest potential.
The philosophy of the program emphasizes developmentally-appropriate activities. The preschool has adopted The Creative Curriculum® for Preschool, a comprehensive, research-based curriculum that features exploration and discovery as a way of learning. Through hands-on, project-based investigations, teachers will build children’s confidence, creativity and critical thinking skills, and promote positive outcomes.
The curriculum aligns to Ohio’s Early Learning and Development Standards. Within this context, children with disabilities receive play-based, individualized, developmentally-appropriate interventions, including child- and teacher-directed activities.
All program services are operated according to the Ohio Department of Education Rules for the Education of preschool children with disabilities and state licensure rules.
