Flying Colors Public Preschool offers early learning experiences to give children an academic and social advantage for success in school and in life. We are fully-licensed by the Ohio Department of Education, and offer preschool and readiness programs for ages 3 to 6. Our teachers are licensed by the Ohio Department of Education and have bachelor and/or masters degrees in early childhood education, pre-k special education, or both.
The Flying Colors Thematic-Project curriculum aligns with Ohio's Pre-Kindergarten Content Standards. We use a careful mix of assessments, observations, and record keeping to monitor each child's success, and provide parents with regular progress reports. Our low student-to-staff ratios ensure your child receives a highly personalized education.
Flying Colors is one of the only preschool programs in the county where the staff includes highly-trained specialists in speech/language therapy, occupational therapy, physical therapy, and social-emotional skills training. These specialists consult with teachers, work with children individually and in small groups, and provide family consultation. They also develop and fulfill Individualized Education Plans (IEPs) for students in many Licking County school districts.
