SIDNEY — It’s not too late to get preschool children into the Head Start program. Kids Learning Place is taking applications and is in full swing of the new 2015-16 school year for preschoolers. There are a few spaces still available for children to enroll in the classrooms and the home visiting program. Call for information today to secure your child’s spot in the no cost Head Start early education program.

Preschool and early learning is important in the development of young children and Head Start, a federally funded comprehensive program, is one no cost option for preschool education at Kids Learning Place. The eligibility for this preschool program is: a child must be between three to five years old and the family must meet federal income guidelines. The program also provides services to children that are in foster care or homeless. The program allocates 10 percent of the slots for children with diagnosed special needs also.

Kids Learning Place centers in Sidney are the only centers in Shelby County to earn the highest 5 star “Step Up To Quality” award from the State of Ohio. This award recognizes early childhood programs that exceed licensing standards. Kids Learning Place classrooms place a major focus on school readiness and works to provide every child with a positive education experience to get them ready for kindergarten. We have degreed teachers in every classroom, a research based curriculum, do developmental testing throughout the year and value and encourage parent participation.
