Hobby Horse Preschool's mission is to provide an age-appropriate, child-centered education in a loving Christian environment. We seek to foster the development of the whole child; socially, emotionally, intellectually, physically, and spiritually.
Children learn best through play and our curriculum reflects that knowledge. Our activities are designed to involve children in both group and individual learning, and to meet the Ohio Early Learning Content Standards.
Our nurturing and professional teachers have degrees in the field of education, Child Development Associates, or are qualified by the State of Ohio to teach preschool. All staff are trained in CPR and First Aid, Communicable Disease and Child Abuse Recognition.
