Early Childhood Center


The Cleveland Heights-University Heights Early Childhood Program is a public preschool program licensed by the Ohio Department of Education. Each of our sites has been chosen to partner with Invest In Children’s Universal Pre-Kindergarten Program to deliver high-quality learning experiences to the  children and the families we serve. We believe in supporting the growth of the whole child through attention to the development of social and emotional skills, physical development and intellectual growth. We strive not only to provide a solid education foundation for each child, but also instill a love of learning and the confidence necessary to explore our ever-changing world.

  • Small class sizes
