Early Childhood experiences enable children to grow to their maximum potential socially, emotionally, intellectually, and physically.

As skills and interests develop, self-confidence grows. Children learn to work and play cooperatively with others. They learn to better understand, express, and gain control of their feelings. They develop body awareness through both small and large muscle activities. Symbolic play and art help children to move from the world of make-believe to the world of words in reading and writing.

Our early childhood programs have earned the highest rating of five stars in the state of Ohio's Step Up to Quality initiative for exceeding quality benchmarks over and above Ohio’s licensing standards for early childhood centers. We hold local accreditation of the highest quality for Cuyahoga County’s Universal Pre-Kindergarten and City of Cleveland’s Pre4CLE programs.
