About US

Over 30 years serving Powell area

 Our staff meets and exceeds the requirements of the State of Ohio Department of Job and Family Services.    Many of our staff have been with the school for more than 10 years, and some more than 20 years.   They truly love working with young children and that shows every day in their commitment to their jobs.  In addition, all of our staff members are current in CPR including use of an onsite AED, First Aid, Communicable Disease, and Child Abuse training.

Unlike many preschools, we do not require potty training to start school, so you do not need to worry about forcing the process if your child is not yet ready to train.

Research based, developmentally appropriate approach to academics

Research shows that preschoolers learn best through play.  Our curriculum will prepare your child for kindergarten, through games, experiments, and activities.

Safe and nurturing environment

We offer a peanut-free environment for those with allergies.  Children are only released to those people designated on their information card.  We find that for many, this is the first time a child may be left in someone else’s care, and our staff is well-versed in helping with this transition for both parent and child.
