Jeffrey Mansion Preschool


The preschool is located on the 2nd Floor of Jeffrey Mansion. Our preschool provides opportunities for social/emotional growth and quality educational experiences.  

Our staff consists of licensed and experienced teachers, who share in the belief that each student has individual needs and attributes that need to be nurtured, guided, and respected in an invigorating setting. We offer a child-centered curriculum, which follows the Preschool Standards set forth by the Ohio Department of Education. To ensure kindergarten readiness, daily lessons, experiences and projects include math, language arts, science, and fine arts, and are conducive for all learning styles. Students also have the opportunities for physical development in the motor room and on the playground located in the beautiful 34-acre Jeffrey Park.

We are licensed by the State of Ohio and maintain an 8:1 student/teacher ratio.  The state requirement is 12:1.  We have an open door policy where parents are encouraged to participate and share their ideas.
