St. Augustine Preschool provides a nurturing, safe and quality education program for children between the ages of 18 months and 12 years. Our teachers are highly educated and well trained in Early Education. Creative Curriculum is the basic curriculum used by our teachers and it clearly defines the role of the teacher in connecting content, teaching and learning for toddler and preschool children. Our classroom environments provide enriching activities and lessons to aid in the successful learning and development of the children. The lessons are aligned with the Ohio Department of Early Education Content Standards. Formal assessments are scheduled twice during the school year as well as daily observations by the teachers to ensure the child’s success and Kindergarten readiness.
