The Cleveland Heights-University Heights Early Childhood Program is a public preschool program licensed by the Ohio Department of Education. We believe in supporting the growth of the whole child through attention to the development of social and emotional skills, physical development and intellectual growth. We strive not only to provide a solid education foundation for each child, but also instill a love of learning and the confidence necessary to explore our ever-changing world.

Registration packets will be available at Gearity, Noble and Oxford Elementary schools on February 4th and will also be available on the registration tab.
