The Preschool II Program (Polar Bear classroom) is comprised of students ages 3 ½ to 4 ½ years.

Depending on your child’s birthday, he/she may be in the Polar Bear room for one to two years. In this classroom we begin introducing concepts and skills that will be further developed in the pre-kindergarten program. A few skills we work on are holding a pencil, tracing letters, sensory motor, science, mathematics, language, literacy, and dramatic play. Additionally, we focus on developing self-help skills to foster independence and growth while meeting the Ohio Early Learning Development Standards.
