The philosophy of Buckeye Local Schools Preschool is based on meeting the individual, developmental needs of all children with and without special needs. The developmental preschool seeks to provide an environment that encourages all children to explore, ask questions and learn things that he/she needs and wants to know about their world.

Our preschool program follows the Ohio Department of Education Early Learning Content Standards in Language Arts, Math, Social Studies, and Science. The curriculum provides a balance of child-centered and teacher facilitated activities that encourage children to investigate, manipulate and experiment as they construct their own knowledge.

The preschool curriculum provides the foundation for future academic success by: building upon previous knowledge and skills; aligning with the Ohio Early Learning Content Standards; and by providing individualized and integrated approaches to assessment, curriculum and instruction. The curriculum addresses key areas of child development including aesthetic and artistic development, emotional and social development, intellectual development, physical development and well being and development of responsibility.
