Reynoldsburg Preschool Program

The Reynoldsburg City Schools,  Early Learning Preschool Program, a program of the Educational Services Center of Central Ohio, provides trans-disciplinary services to preschoolers (ages 3-5) with and without disabilities. The preschool program is located at Livingston High School.  

The program is designed to provide child-centered, enriched learning activities that are developmentally appropriate and aligned with the Ohio Department of Education Early Learning Content Standards. Classrooms are divided into interest centers such as book, art, dramatic play, block building, manipulatives and sensory. Materials and activities at each interest center are individualized for the children. Busy and quiet activities alternate and time is set aside for the children to meet as a group with the teacher for planned activities.

The preschool program is supported by a team of highly qualified and licensed/certified professionals, which may include a teacher, paraprofessional, occupational therapist, speech and language pathologist, physical therapist and adapted physical education teacher as deemed appropriate by an IEP team.

Inclusive Classrooms serve up to 16 students, 8 children with disabilities and 8 typically- developing preschool peer models. Specialized classrooms are exclusively for students with disabilities who needs are best met in smaller or highly structured environments.  Eligibility for children with disabilities is determined by a district evaluation team following the eligibility criteria established by the Ohio Department of Education. Students with disabilities benefit from small group instruction in a supportive environment that includes interacting with typically-developing preschool peer models.

Itinerant preschool special education services are also available to assist children in their home, preschool or childcare setting. Staff work collaboratively with district personnel and families to support transition planning and develop and implement Individualized Education Program goals designed to meet the unique needs of preschoolers with a disability.

Services are provided in the child’s natural setting by a certified early childhood intervention specialist at a minimum of four hours per month.

The peer model portion of the program is tuition based and parents provide transportation.  Peer models may be eligible for free or reduced tuition and transportation, based on family income.
