Preschool Program

The purpose of Fostoria City Schools Preschool Program is to provide an enriched environment that will foster enriched meaningful experiences for learning, exploring and peer involvement.  Our preschool curriculum follows the Ohio Department of Education‘s Early Learning Content Standards in the areas of Language Arts, Mathematics, Science and Social Studies.

Our program is built upon the belief that learning is a collaborative process that occurs between the home and schools.  Also, knowledge and skills are acquired by a child through “hands-on” experiences. Students are provided a rich learning environment with structured and unstructured activities designed to encourage exploration and discovery which are essential in helping young children learn basic academic skills while promoting positive social and behavioral growth.

Our Preschool Program is licensed by the Ohio Department of Education and is located at:

                                Longfellow Elementary School

                                619 Sandusky St.
