Our Rising Fives program offers children the opportunity to grow, learn and develop, in an environment intentionally set up for Fives. With a 1 teacher to 10 children ratio and an additional assistant, the teachers are able to spend quality time with each child, allowing them to tailor the classroom experience to individual learning styles and needs that prepare your child for kindergarten. Teachers utilize Creative Curriculum, a research based curriculum developed specifically to teach children from birth to Kindergarten entry along with the Ohio Early Learning and Development standards, to develop lessons that ensure they are meeting the needs of each child as well as the classroom as a whole.
