The Vantage Preschool, where children learn and play, is now accepting registrations for children ages 3 to 5 years old.  The preschool offers a morning program that runs from 8:20 to 10:50 a.m. or an all-day session from 8:20 a.m. to 2:20 p.m., Monday through Thursday. The preschool serves as a learning lab for high school students enrolled in the Early Childhood Education program.  It is a state-licensed facility and is open to the public.  There are large indoor and outdoor spaces for the children to enjoy and learn in, along with state-of-the-art technology incorporated into daily sessions.  Children participate in age-appropriate activities and meaningful experiences that will expand their social, emotional, intellectual, and physical development in a preschool with a very low child-to-staff ratio.  For more information about the Vantage Preschool, or to reserve a spot for a child, contact Rhonda Davis or Marcia Osenga at 419.238.5411, extension 2408.
