The Blue Ash Educational Building announces Enrollment for all Preschool Programs in now open for the Fall 2021-2022 school year. The school provides Preschool and Child Development Programs from 6:00 AM-6:45 PM. The school requires all preschool children to be in attendance by 8:45 AM. All children, school-wide, are served breakfast starting at 7:30 AM, a healthy AM snack, a prepared in-school lunch, and a healthy PM snack.
Since 1965, the Blue Ash Educational Building has provided high quality education at their Blue Ash, Ohio location. The school has been under the same management for over half a century. In 1987, the Ohio Department of Education chartered the school’s Kindergarten Program and licensed their Infant and Preschool Programs. The school has cared for and educated thousands of children from age 6 weeks through age 12 years in their11,000 square foot facility, situated on 7 acres of age appropriate, developmentally designed playscapes and outdoor learning centers.
Daily, preschool children actively participate in play and self-chosen activities by: Maintaining the Children’s Garden; experiencing a variety of sports on the school’s Soccer Field; exploring Nature Trails in the Discovery Forest; creating and observing musical, science and dramatic play events in the Fallen Tree Amphitheater; experiencing the joy of learning in the outdoor classrooms for Science, Math, Art, Music, Language, and Dramatic Play; digging, discovering and constructing in our Sand and Gravel Areas; feeling the excitement of being surrounded by beauty and nature while delighting with working in the Curiosity Rock Garden, Insect Hotel and Mud Kitchen; and thriving on the conversations, love and laughter of their Good Buddy playmates.
This very unique setting was destined for young children and safety has always been the purpose of its environmental design. The school is situated 200 feet away from the street thereby protecting our children from exposure to pollution, traffic and random encounters with strangers. Closed circuit cameras are positioned on our driveway, parking areas, all four separately fenced playgrounds, Sports Field, Children’s Garden, interior hallways and all indoor classrooms to assure your child’s safety. All areas may be simultaneously monitored. This, coupled with the in-school private line, allows immediate access and oversight for safety and security.
The most obvious signs of the center’s high quality is parent satisfaction and the ability to maintain a professional staff on a long- term basis. The school’s current staff has accumulated 235 years of early childhood teaching experience all at the Blue Ash Educational Building.
The school was the first to establish a Parent’s Association, the first to allow mothers with children to be on the job while involving her children in the school program, and the first to engage parents with the education of their children. This is significant as research now has shown, that at all levels of very young children, the relationship between home and school is powerful in predicting the future school success of children.
The school credits this family centered atmosphere for the success of our Prevent, Teach, and Reinforce approach to a child’s challenging behaviors. As staff observes and documents a child’s activity, an emergent curriculum evolves that is child-initiated, child-directed and teacher-supported with developmentally appropriate activities and materials leading to an integrated development of the child’s mental, physical, social and emotional being. This unique planning for each child is life changing.
