St. John’s Early Education Center was established in 1964 as a ministry for St. John’s Episcopal Church in downtown Worthington, Ohio. The center’s program is based on a belief in the uniqueness of every human being and the goal is to establish a good self-image. We strive to provide quality, loving care for children Three, Four and Five years of age in a trusting environment.  Children must be three by September 30th for fall admittance.

Each of the classrooms provide children many opportunities for mental, physical and emotional growth through a variety of creative experiences. Recognizing that young children learn as they play with materials and share experiences, free play is considered an essential part of the school day as well as routines and planned activities. Our teachers recognize the importance of balanced growth. The schedule is flexible with provisions made to meet the needs of the individual child.

For our four and five year old children we offer a two-day a week Enrichment program, which is two-hour extension of the school day. Children bring their lunch and the teachers provide enriching activities in science, math, reading and social studies.  The Enrichment class is good preparation for children moving on to Kindergarten.

We also offer a young 3’s class beginning in January. It has become quite popular as we are the only school in the area to have a program for children who turn 3 by the end of January. Our teachers are particularly perceptive to the needs of that age group. They provide a trusting environment where children are comfortable and welcome. Spots are limited to a small number of students which allows each child more individualized attention from the teachers.

St. John’s Early Education Program is licensed by the State of Ohio. The Ohio Department of Jobs and Family Services (ODJFS) visits annually and does a rigorous inspection of the center. We have consistently been a distinguished center from others in the area as going above and beyond regulations to create an exceptional preschool program. Our teachers continue to keep their teaching skills and credentials current.

Our preschool has a limited number of spaces available each year and so parents are encouraged to visit the school, please call for an appointment 614-885-2315 (M-F 9am-noon) or send us an email at earlyed@stjohnsworthington.org.
