Preschool at Northview

The Preschool at Sylvania Northview High School is operated through a partnership with the Sylvania Schools Preschool Special Education Program, Sylvania Schools Career Tech Education & Training Program, and Sylvania Community Services (SCS). 

 

This center-based setting includes both students with disabilities and typical peers. In addition to providing an inclusive setting for students with disabilities, the program provides laboratory training for high school students enrolled in the Education and Training Program. These students are supervised/guided by the program team.

 

Sylvania Community Services enrolls 3 to 5-year-olds Mondays through Fridays from 7:00 am to 4:00 pm. The program is open during the school year from August to May.

Curriculum

Children in the program are involved in various developmentally appropriate experiences, including art, music and movement, outdoor play, free choice time, literature, and pre-math and pre-science activities. Activities are offered within a flexible structure, planned for the total growth and development of the child. 

 

The program uses curricula and assessment methods aligned with Ohio’s Early Learning and Development Standards. These include:

 

  • The Creative Curriculum for Preschool: an award-winning, comprehensive curriculum for preschool success. It is a research-based curriculum that focuses on helping children develop confidence, creativity, and lifelong critical thinking skills, emphasizing play-based learning through play centers or “Interest Areas.” 

  • Conscious Discipline: a research-backed and evidence-based program used in the classroom to help children show compassion and feel better about themselves in a caring, connected, and safe environment. 

  • Handwriting Without Tears: a curriculum to support preschool's developmental progression of pre-writing and printing skills. It is a developmentally based program that provides children with a multi-sensory approach (move to music, build with manipulatives and consistent verbal/visual icons) to learn that print has meaning.

  • The Second Step Curriculum: which teachers use to teach social-emotional and self-regulation skills through weekly themes using puppets, books, music, and visual aids.

  • Teaching Strategies Gold: the assessment program used to monitor children’s progress in all areas of development. Families receive assessment information twice yearly.

  • The Ages and Stages Questionnaire: a screening tool used to monitor a child's progress in all areas of development. This is done through collaboration with families.

 

Our overall program philosophy is that children learn the best

through meaningful PLAY!
