Kids Learning Place taking applications
As the end of summer and the time for children to return to school approaches, the Kids Learning Place is taking final applications to begin the 2012-2013 school year for preschoolers. Don’t wait, as there are just a few spaces still available for children to enroll. Call for information today to secure a 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 Van Wert have earned the “Step Up To Quality” award from the State of Ohio. This award recognizes early childhood programs that exceed licensing standards.
The Van Wert centers have degreed teachers in every classroom, a research-based curriculum, do developmental testing of children throughout the year and value parent participation. 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. To be eligible for the Head Start preschool program, a child must be between 3-5 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, the centers have a home-based option available in many areas, where a home visitor comes to the home each week to teach and demonstrate educational activities to parents that they can use to help their children learn.
Be sure a child gains the knowledge to succeed in school! For more information about this program or other full-day child education/care programs, call toll-free 866.627.4557 for immediate contact or check the program website at www.councilonruralservices.org.
