Preschool Curriculum

The comprehensive curriculum for the Kent City Schools Preschool is based on the Ohio Early Learning Program Guidelines and aligns with the Ohio Early Learning Content Standards.  Our program uses the Houghton-Mifflin Pre-K integrated curriculum which is standards-based instruction and correlates to the Ohio Early Learning Content Standards.  We also have in place Kent City Schools board-approved courses of study for math, science, social studies, music and physical education.
