Enrolling Now for Fall Preschool in the Head Start Program

Just because it’s cold doesn’t mean we can’t plan in the snow!
During one of the very cold days the kids brought several
buckets of snow into their classroom and worked to find answers to
some of their “I wonder” questions about snow. I wonder what
happens when you bring snow inside? I wonder what snow feels like
when I don’t wear gloves?
Do you know your child only has 1,892 days from birth to be ready for kindergarten? They might be little; but what your child learns during this early time is crucial to giving them opportunities in the future. Valuable lessons begin at birth and continue through preschool; they do not wait for kindergarten or primary school. This early period is one of the most important learning times in your child’s life.

Enrollment is taking place now for the fall 2012 Head Start Program at Kids Learning Place in Darke County, call for information today to secure your child’s spot in the program.

Every child needs a variety of learning experiences that enhance their cognitive, social, emotional and physical growth. Our classrooms provide children with safe and nurturing classrooms or a visiting home based opportunity. Kids Learning Place classrooms provide every child with a positive education experience that includes:

  • teachers with degrees in every classroom
  • a research-based curriculum
  • developmental testing throughout the year
  • individualized services for children and families
  • bus transportation in most areas
  • welcomes opportunity to service children with special needs
  • valuing and encouraging parent participation

Kids Learning Place is committed to ensuring education excellence for the families and children we serve. One way is for our centers to be involved in Ohio’s “Step Up to Quality” program, which recognizes early childhood programs that exceed licensing standards. Our centers in Greenville, Bradford, and Union City are the ONLY child care programs in Darke County recognized with a “Star Award” for quality from the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services.

Head Start, a federally funded preschool program, is just one option for early education at Kids Learning Place. The eligibility for this no cost 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 and children with disabilities are considered without income restrictions.
