Creative Curriculum

First Years Preschool & Kindergarten utilizes the Creative Curriculum, which aligns with the Ohio Early Learning and Development standards. It’s specially-designed to meet each child at their level and rate of development and learning style. Our trained staff implements purposeful activities and lessons to help the whole child learn and grow. The end goal of our program is to prepare your child for elementary school in all areas of development (social, emotional, physical, cognitive, and spiritual) in hands-on learning environments. Our preschool day runs from 9am-12pm, with enrichment classes available for ages 3 and up from 12pm-2pm. Our kindergarten center runs from 8:30am-2:30pm.

In the Creative Curriculum, children are encouraged to participate and share as they learn and explore studies based on their interests. Children at First Years Preschool & Kindergarten learn to be an individual, to be creative, to be expressive, and to have a positive sense of self as they continue to discover the person God made them to be. We also strive to create an atmosphere where parents can be involved and partner with teachers to provide the best early childhood and kindergarten experience possible during your child’s First Years.
