  • What Makes Us a Unique Place to Learn?

    We're proud of our intergenerational partnership program with Ohio Health!

    Every two months our Kindergarten Prep classes partner up with our senior friends at Ohio Health. Our Movement Matters Zone provides easy access for those needing wheel chair assistance or other assistance while we work on activities together. After our learning time, we all sit down together to enjoy a family style lunch.
