Ontario Local Schools



The Ontario Preschool Program uses the state of Ohio’s Early Content Standards as a guide for instruction. The program uses Creative Curriculum which aligns with the Ohio Early Learning Content Standards. The preschool provides an integrated early childhood setting in which children of various backgrounds and needs engage in developmentally appropriate activities and practices. Play serves as a vital learning activity. Self-esteem, socialization and appreciation of differences are valued outcomes.

Classrooms are divided into interest centers, such as art, dramatic play, block building, manipulatives, language, sensory, motor, etc. The materials and activities at each interest center are individualized by staff for the children. Activities alternate, and time is set aside for the children to meet as a group with the teacher for planned circle activities. Self-help activities are also addressed. Through play and self-initiated learning, the children refine the social/emotional, motor, thinking, and language skills necessary for success in school.
