The Tri-County Preschools offer services to children in Ashland, Holmes and Wayne Counties, using a curriculum that is aligned to Ohio's Early Learning Content Standards.  This curriculum allows teachers to prepare children for kindergarten using developmentally appropriate practices.  The framework for the curriculum is the Assessment, Evaluation, Programming, System (AEPS) which is scientifically research based and is supported by the Ohio Department of Education.

Research has shown that quality preschool has a positive and long lasting impact on children.  We welcome you to visit the following links, as they demonstrate the impact of preschool as well as the advances in early education.

Please call the Preschool office for a registration (application) 330-262-2262.  You will need a copy of your child's Birth Certificate and Immunization Record for registration.


Welcome to the 2023-2024 School Year!

We continually examine our program to bring the best teaching practices to each and every classroom.  Our staff participated in a focused study group recently where the newest research on developmentally appropriate practices were discussed.  The teachers and therapists are eager to apply these new findings to their classrooms and daily interactions with children.  Please visit the National Association for the Educators of Young Children's website to learn more about developmentally appropriate practices. 

Tri-County Preschools are a service of Tri-County ESC Department of Special Education.
