An Ohio grant can help children from low-income families be ready for kindergarten, and space is available for four-year-olds at the Acorn Center at Scarlet Oaks Career Campus for fall 2019.
Families who are at or below 200% of the federal poverty level can qualify for low-cost or free preschool classes at Scarlet Oaks, located at 3254 E. Kemper Road. Classes begin in August.
The Ohio Department of Education says there are eight benefits of a high-quality preschool. Children will
- Be ready for kindergarten
- Develop important social and emotional skills
- Take part in activities planned just for them
- Be curious and want to learn
- Learn how to take care of themselves and help others
- Learn pre-math and reading skills
- Develop motor skills
- Increase language and thinking skills
Space is limited; for more information or to apply, contact Acorn Center Director Denise Rollins at 513.612.5880 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
