Early Childhood Education

student It is the vision of the Cleveland Metropolitan School District that every student in our Early Childhood grades (Pre-K--3) will be successful in a rigorous instructional program. Our Early Childhood program addresses the language and cognitive development of students in addition to addressing the social, emotional, and physical needs of every child.

The mission of the Early Childhood Office is to create a rich and stimulating, child centered environment in every classroom. Parents can expect to find developmentally appropriate teaching strategies in a center-based setting in every one of our Pre-K-3 classrooms.

As we continually strive to optimize the conditions for learning for CMSD’s youngest learners, each student is valued for his/her unique experiences and learning style, as we work toward our ultimate goal is to help them become successful independent learners.
