    Who we are...

    The Early Childhood Department offers services for students and parents during the early stages of growth. We provide Help Me Grow/Home Visiting, Preschool, and Disability Services for families residing in Mahoning & surrounding Counties. The department also offers literacy-rich classrooms with a developmentally appropriate/research-based curriculum that is aligned with the Ohio's Early Learning  Standards. We provide assessment, instruction and special services such as speech, occupational and physical therapy at no cost to those children who qualify.


    What we do...

    The Mahoning County Educational Service Center Early Childhood Department will reach out to families to ensure awareness, encourage enrollment and engagement in the scope of ESC programs, and provide evidence-based practices as measured by the Early Learning Assessment to demonstrate that children enter Kindergarten at their optimum level of school readiness.
