There are many benefits for children attending preschool.
Preschool helps children build self-confidence, expand creativity, acquire basic mathematic skills, strengthen language and motor skills, and develop good social and behavior management skills. They also gain exposure to letters, numbers, shapes, colors, and sounds which are important pre-kindergarten skills.

On October 9, 2012, the State Board of Education adopted Ohio’s Entry Early Learning and Development Standards in all domains of school readiness to reflect the comprehensive development of children beginning at birth to kindergarten entry. The development of these standards represented a collaboration between state agencies serving young children. The state agencies worked with national experts and writing teams made up of Ohio-based content experts and stakeholders to revise and expand the standards.
