The classrooms are arranged in attractive learning centers designed to capture the children’s interests, natural curiosity, and eagerness to learn. Each center enhances one or more areas of a child’s development. The curriculum, which is aligned with the Ohio Department of Education Early Learning Content Standards, includes lessons to promote academic skills with the primary focus on literacy and math. Activities and materials are multi-leveled and open-ended to provide challenges for each child and to enhance his/her individual development.

The professional teaching staff is well trained and all hold college degrees with specialization in early childhood education. The staff is enhanced with students from the Early Childhood Education program, as well as other degree programs, who participate in the daily activities in the classrooms.
