Preschool/Early Childhood

The ESC of the Western Reserve provides high quality preschool to any child between the ages of 3-5 throughout both Lake and Geauga Counties. Our preschools are licensed by the Ohio Department of Education and follow a state approved curriculum that is aligned to the Ohio Early Childhood Content Standards. All of our staff are licensed by the Ohio Department of Education and the majority hold a Master's Degree. 
 
Children are curious about their world and full of wonder making preschool a crucial time of learning. Early childhood education fosters independence and creativity in all areas of learning so that young children may know the true joy of discovery. Through a prepared environment, preschool can offer a broad spectrum of experiences that spark the imagination of children and alert them to the vast possibilities that their world presents. Exploring together with other children provides an opportunity for children to understand their own needs as well as the needs of others.
 
Our goal is to prepare all children for Kindergarten and we do this by implementing all five developmental domains;
  • fine/gross motor
  • communicative
  • adaptive
  • cognitive
  • 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/questionnaires. In some cases, children need further evaluations and may qualify for specialized services in the areas of occupational, speech/language, or physical therapy.
