ENGLEWOOD — Laughter, encouragement, and hands-on exploring is what you will see and hear coming from the preschool at the Miami Valley Career Technology Center (MVCTC).
This preschool is unique in that junior and senior high school students run it as part of the Early Childhood Education program. The program’s instructors, Connie Marshal and Alicia Newman, educate students on all areas of child development, instructional strategies, and curriculum set forth by the State of Ohio Board of Education. Students apply their knowledge and skills by operating a fully functional preschool for three to five-year-olds. Every day the preschoolers explore and learn through various activities designed and implemented by these bright young educators.
The preschool is divided into two different classes, one in the morning, and one in the afternoon. On any given day, you will find children in the preschool actively involved and enjoying learning. “Each morning these children walk through that door with a smile on their face and an aura of sheer delight to be here and to learn with us and we are honored by that,” said Alicia Newman.
Enrollment for the next school year begins February 1, 2016. Children ages three to five (must be three by June 1) and that are potty trained may apply. Both morning and afternoon classes will be offered on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, & Thursdays. The morning class is from 9-11:25 a.m. and the afternoon class is from 11:45-2:10 p.m. There is a $20 non-refundable registration fee and yearly tuition is $450.
