Early Childhood

Welcome to the Canton City School District Early Childhood Program, where we strive to prepare every child for success in transitioning to kindergarten.  In a safe, welcoming and student centered learning environment, students engage in structured play with a strong focus on reading and math integration.  In addition, students are actively involved in weekly lessons centered around the arts (dance, drama, music and visual), as provided through our partnership with Artful Living and Learning. 

Our program services children ages 3-5, by employing certified, highly qualified teachers and implementing a researched based curriculum that aligns to the Early Learning Standards.  Canton City Schools’ Preschool has earned the Step Up to Quality 5-Star Rating in each of our facilities.  This rating is the highest rating awarded by the Ohio Department of Education and the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services.

Services are provided in seven of our schools to accommodate our students and families:  Belle Stone, Dueber, Harter, McGregor, Patrick, Schreiber, and Worley.
