Bright Beginnings Preschool

OVESC’s premier classrooms for 3-5 year old students in Washington, Guernsey, Monroe and Noble counties

Teaching for the Future

Our teachers and staff train monthly to implement current teaching strategies that help your young child learn the skills needed to be a strong, independent learner. Our goal is to partner with you and your home school district to prepare your child for kindergarten.


Tuition options include private pay, access to the Tuition Assistance Program and the Early Childhood Education Grant (pending age, income eligibility and district eligibility).

Special Education

If a child has a suspected disability, our staff will listen and work with you to navigate the referral process for services.
Testing can occur in the following suspected disability areas:

  • Communication
  • ​Large and small muscle movement
  • Getting along with others
  • Taking care of one’s own needs
  • Hearing
  • ​Vision
  • Thinking and problem solving

If your child qualifies for services in any of these areas, they may receive special education services provided by the Bright Beginnings Preschool staff. For additional guidance, you can also refer to the Guide to Parents Rights in Special Education.
