The 5 Star rated Mt. Healthy City School Preschool Program at both elementary schools provides experiences where children interact with materials that enrich their cognitive, emotional, and physical growth. The curriculum provides hands-on experiences and a feeling of success among all children.

In 2017, MTHCS Preschools were evaluated and given a 5 Star rating by Step Up to Quality through Ohio Department of Education. Our program stresses a developmentally appropriate based curriculum and parental involvement. Instruction reflects the needs of the individual child. Classroom centers are carefully planned for small group, large group and independent exploration throughout the session.

The class routine allows for flexibility that is required when young children's interests or needs indicate more urgent priorities. Our classes reflect a diverse group of children, some of whom have disabilities.

The program has three Monday through Thursday half-day sessions.
