The Upper Valley Early Childhood Development Center Preschool is now accepting applications for the 2020-21 school year. The Career Center operates a state-licensed preschool for children 18 months through five years of age, and is currently accepting applications from families in Miami, Shelby, or surrounding counties.
The Early Childhood Program is child-driven and is responsive to the developmental needs and interests of each student. It is a play-based center and the children have opportunities to explore and investigate material through open-ended and hands-on learning experiences.
Upper Valley Career Center students in the Early Childhood Education program plan and implement the curriculum within their program to gain experience working with young children. The high school students learn developmentally appropriate procedures and put these into action in the activities that they plan for the preschool children. The program is licensed by the Ohio Department of Education and aligns with the State’s Early Learning Standards.
