Preschool is returning for the 2021-2022 school year. The Dobbins Early Learning Center (Dobbins Elementary) will be the new home for our preschool program. Preschool starts September 7, 2021.
The following classes will be offered:
Transitional Kindergarten (4 and 5 year olds/ 5 days a week/ 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.)
M-W-F Class (4 and 5 year olds/ 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.)
T-TH Class (3 year olds/ 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.)
The Dobbins Early Learning Center is an updated facility within the Poland Local School District. Classrooms have fresh coats of paint, there’s new carpeting in the classroom, preschoolers will have access to a computer lab, an age appropriate playground, and there’s also a new gym floor. When it comes to building safety, cameras and buzzers will be installed at all preschool entrances.
The preschool curriculum also aligns with the curriculum that is taught in kindergarten, which includes Bridges in Mathematics and Heggerty Phonemic Awareness.
“So when they go over to kindergarten the following year, they will find a lot of similarities with language with their work habits,” said Mike Masucci, Preschool Director and Principal at Poland Union Elementary.
Spots for preschool are limited. Families interested in enrolling a child can contact Mrs. Weaver (330-757-0851) as soon as possible.
