SCESC Preschool Programs
The Stark County Educational Service Center Preschool Programs are a collaborative effort among 11 school districts.
The programs provide early learning opportunities for approximately 550 children. The board-approved Early Childhood curriculum has been aligned with The Ohio Department of Education's Early Learning Content Standards. These standards establish benchmarks that impact future learning. Early childhood educators provide meaningful "subject matter learning experiences" which encourage all students to construct their own knowledge in powerful ways. All programming is targeted to give children early support and build a strong knowledge-based foundation.
The Early Childhood Programs follow Ohio's Early Learning Program Guidelines. These guidelines provide a framework for program operation, conditions for teaching, learning, and accountability. Research demonstrates that the adults who care for and educate young children also shape the children's understanding of themselves, others and the world around them.
