The Wickliffe City School District provides high quality preschool programming to children between the ages of 3-5. Our preschool is licensed by the Ohio Department of Education and earned 5 STARS from Ohio’s quality rating system, Step Up To Quality (SUTQ). We follow a state approved curriculum that is aligned to the Ohio Early Childhood Content Standards. Our goal is to prepare all children for Kindergarten and we do this by implementing all five developmental domains; fine/gross motor, communication, adaptive/cognitive skills, and social/emotional. In addition to the five developmental domains, we realize the importance of children learning 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.
In order to meet every child's individual needs, we assess every child through a variety of methods including play-based, observation, and parent interviews and questionnaires. In some cases, children need further evaluations and may qualify for specialized services in the areas of occupational, speech/language, or physical therapy. All of our staff have a minimum of a Bachelor’s Degrees and are licensed by the Ohio Department of Education.
There are two classrooms with a certified teacher and aide in each room at all times. The program operates Monday through Thursday from 8:30-11:00 and 12:30-3:00. The cost is $100.00 per month. Out-of-district residents are welcome if there are openings and must provide their own transportation.
