Preschool Services

General Information

The ECOESC, in collaboration with our partner school districts, provides preschool services to children ages 3 to 5 in Belmont, Guernsey, and Tuscarawas counties. ECOESC classrooms are integrated, meaning classes include typically developing children and children with disabilities. Daily lessons are play-based using the Creative Curriculum that allows teachers to design learning opportunities around children’s interests.
