3.5/4 Year Old Program

Requirements:  Must be 4 by December 31

Ratios: Ohio Job and Family Services allows for a 1 teacher to 12 students ratio, however we maintain a ratio of 2 teachers to 14 students.  This allows for quality programming and ensures the children’s sense of safety and security within the classroom.

Curriculum:  The goal of our program is to meet the Ohio Preschool Standards that are set by the state, and we use Creative Curriculum as a guide.  Our highly qualified teaching staff plans activities based on the interests and needs of the children.

Three days a week, we offer morning classes from 9:00-11:30 and afternoon classes from 12:30-3:00.
