"Let the children come to me, and do not hinder them.”

Sycamore Presbyterian Preschool (SPP) is an important part of Sycamore Presbyterian Church’s mission outreach to the community.

Sycamore Presbyterian Preschool is one of the few preschools in Ohio that has received a prestigious Five-Star Rating by the State of Ohio’s Step Up to Quality childcare rating system.  Our program meets or exceeds criteria set by the Step Up to Quality program and ensures the highest quality of care to the children enrolled at SPP.  Many areas are considered before this honor is awarded, which include staff/child ratios and interactions, staff qualifications, curriculum, staff/parent communication, health and safety, and administration.

Curriculum

SPP’s child-centered curriculum provides developmentally appropriate activities for children of any developmental level.  The daily hands-on activities cover all areas of interest and learning, including science, math, reading, writing, sensory exploration, music, exercise, block building, manipulatives, art, small & large group learning and free choice.

SPP’s curriculum encompasses the Early Learning Standards developed by the Ohio Department of Education, and assures that our curriculum leads directly into Ohio’s K-12 Standards.    

Our program is designed to provide a loving, caring Christian environment that is supportive, nurturing, and responsive to each child’s individual needs.  We believe that the whole child is very important.  Each child’s total development includes positive self-esteem, as well as spiritual, emotional, social, mental, and physical growth.  It is important that your child be provided an opportunity to develop in each of these areas at his/her own pace.

Registration is open to everyone, and a non-refundable $75.00 fee is due upon registration.
