Testimonials
We chose to enroll our children into Mohawk school systems based mostly off of their preschool program. It is hard to find a good program in this area that fits the normal school hours schedule. It was important for us that it be 8a-3p like a normal school day to set a routine that would be similar to K-12. Another reason is I have personally never heard one poorly spoken word on Mohawk’s preschool. I researched preschools for over a year and a half! Mohawk was my top pick. They have amazing, dedicated teaches and an outstanding curriculum.

Why we chose Mohawk Preschool…Mohawk is home for us. We know the system, we know the staff, and that gives us a certain level of comfort. I know when my child goes to school she is not only being taught, she is being cared for and you can’t get that everywhere. I know that at Mohawk, my children will receive a top notch educational experience. We love and will always choose Mohawk!

Special Needs

It is important to remember that Mohawk also serves preschool students with special needs. If you or someone you know has a student ages 3-5 and has concerns with either speech/language, social emotional, or developmental delays, please contact Brooke Bowlin at 419.927.6222. Mohawk will do a screening to see if the student would need to have an evaluation for special education services. If the child should qualify for special education services, they would be offered free preschool. We are taking these concerns and enrollments throughout the 2021/2022 school year.

New Digital Resource Launched for Preschool Learning

Ohio’s parents and educators have a new resource to help little learners ages 3-5 prepare for school and their futures with the INFOhio Early Learning Portal. The easy-to-navigate site contains more than 50 websites and apps chosen and evaluated by educators and librarians with expertise in early learning and literacy. 

“Our young children are eager to learn. It’s crucial that we nurture that desire and build a solid foundation for future learning,” said Paolo DeMaria, superintendent of public instruction. “Parents and educators can help their students be ready for school through these quality resources that make learning fun.”

“This website is a tremendous resource for parents and child care providers,” said Cynthia C. Dungey, director of the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services. “It has a wealth of concrete suggestions for preparing children to succeed later in school. Best of all, those suggestions are both simple and fun.”

The INFOhio Early Learning Portal helps preschool children:

  • Learn letters, numbers and basic knowledge;
  • Interact with other children and adults;
  • Engage in meaningful play; and
  • Develop focus and problem-solving skills. 

Each resource supports Ohio’s Early Learning and Development Standards for school readiness.

Parents and educators also will find tips on appropriately integrating technology into a preschool child’s learning. Adults are encouraged to use the digital resources with children and participate when they play games, watch videos, or read and listen to e-books on a device.

The INFOhio Early Learning Portal was made possible by a partnership with INFOhio, the Ohio Department of EducationOhio Department of Job and Family Services and the Office of Gov. John Kasich.

Nearly all resources in the portal are available for free, with a few available for a minimal fee.
