GREENVILLE—Kids Learning Place is taking final applications to begin the 2012-13 school year for preschoolers. Don’t wait, as there are just a few spaces still available. Call for information today to secure your child’s spot in the Head Start program.
Preschool and early learning is important in the development of young children, and the Kids Learning Place centers in Greenville, Bradford, and Union City are the only centers in Darke County to earn a “Step Up To Quality” award from the State of Ohio. This award recognizes early childhood programs that exceed licensing standards. The centers offer degreed teachers in every classroom, a research based curriculum, developmental testing of children throughout the year and value parent participation. The centers use the project approach to learning and provide individualized services for children and families. Kids Learning Place classrooms provide every child with a positive education experience.
Head Start, a federally funded comprehensive program, is just one option for preschool education at Kids Learning Place. The eligibility for the Head Start preschool program is: a child must be between three to five years old and the family must meet federal income guidelines. The program also provides services to children of families that are homeless; children with disabilities are considered without income restrictions.
Besides this classroom opportunity, a home based option is available in many areas; a home visitor comes to the home each week to teach and demonstrate educational activities to the parent that they can use to help the child learn.
