In a room full of kindergarteners, you wouldn’t want your child to feel left behind and lost.
That’s why it’s important to choose quality education over day care for the critical years leading up to kindergarten. You want your child to start out on the right foot. We believe all children deserve that start, regardless of their economic situation, which is why we have focused our attention on children living in low-income neighborhoods.
The program is based on the premise that all children share common needs, and that children of low-income families in particular can benefit most from a comprehensive developmental program designed to meet those needs and hopefully break the cycle of poverty.
Cincinnati Union Bethel runs four Head Start preschools that prepare children 3-5 years old for kindergarten. Our Early Childhood Education program provides a rich variety of activities that foster the intellectual, physical, mental, emotional and social development of each child, while also supporting the family.
For information about enrolling your child in one of Cincinnati Union Bethel’s preschools, please call 513.768.6917.
We know the potential for learning is greatest during the early years of a child’s life, so we take advantage of every moment. Each of our classes provides age-appropriate instruction in the following growth areas using a research-based curriculum:
Language & Literacy
Music & Art
Math & Science
Our preschool students receive nutritional meals and snacks every day, as well as access to medical and dental screenings and care.
Not only does our program help children prepare for kindergarten, we also help the family. We help parents reach their own goals and teach parents how to better support their children. We believe a strong family helps children grow.
Half-day option: a 3-1/2 hour session in either the morning or afternoon, Monday-Thursday
In most cases, the half-day sessions include bus transportation to and from the school.
