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.
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.
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 classroom 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. In addition, we are also one of the few preschools in Central Ohio to attain a 5 Star Step Up to Quality rating. The Ohio Department of Jobs and Family Services (ODJFS) offer a voluntary rigorous inspection service and grants centers either an official rating based on their findings. This program, called Step Up To Quality, distinguishes one center from another 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
