Getting a child ready for kindergarten is important! But that learning starts at birth and continues through preschool. If they wait for kindergarten or primary school they will be missing the time when their learning develops most quickly in their life.

Kids Learning Place is now taking applications and filling the limited number of spots for the Head Start preschool classrooms in Darke County for fall 2015. Head Start is a federal funded, high-quality preschool program for children between three to five years old. The program is no cost to the families that meet eligibility with limited income, foster children, children who live with homeless families or children who have a disability or special need.

We want to help your kids be ready for kindergarten! We are committed to ensuring education excellence for the families and children. Every child needs a variety of learning experiences before starting school; we achieve this in Head Start preschool by providing a positive education experience that includes:

experienced teachers with degrees in every classroom
half day preschool in classrooms or through home base visits
safe and friendly environments where children are eager to learn
teaching plans that match school readiness and how children learn and develop

Our centers in Greenville, Bradford, and Union City are the ONLY child care programs in Darke County that are recognized in Ohio’s “Step Up to Quality” program with either a 3 or 4 star award for quality from the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services.
