    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
