In this loving, caring environment children experience hands-on activities which help to develop and enhance their creativity. They are challenged to seek and explore answers through natural curiosity and self expression. We believe it is important to give the children entrusted in our care the precious gift of love and the knowledge of being loved. It is our intent to provide individual attention through low child/teacher ratios. These low ratios allow children to develop at their own pace, aiding them as they develop a sense of value, self respect, and independence. 

World of Love offers an excellent full or half-day preschool program for all children who attend. Under the guidance of our highly capable, experienced teachers we follow Ohio’s Early Learning and Development Standards and meet all requirements set forward by state licensing laws.

All of our programs are theme based and developmentally appropriate. They are designed to challenge children intellectually through language arts, reading readiness, art, science, and musical skill development. Motor skill development is emphasized with a balance of large and small motor skills. Of great importance is the development of social skills and these, along with others, provide children with an enriching and rewarding experience.

Special aspects of our program include a weekly chapel program with the pastor as well as family activities, field trips and special events.  We operate Monday through Friday 6:30 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.
