The Lorain City Schools preschool program provides free, high-quality early childhood education to young children in the city of Lorain. With classrooms located in each of our ten elementary schools, we aim to make preschool accessible to every family in Lorain, giving our preschool students an early start at their neighborhood school. Our staff are experienced, highly qualified, and passionate about early childhood education, and they continue to hone their craft through regular professional learning experiences and ongoing coaching. 
We know that no two children learn exactly the same way, and our program is built to reflect and celebrate this reality. Our classrooms are integrated environments, where students of varying ages and developmental levels have the opportunity to interact and learn from each other. We also offer a variety of classroom models to meet students’ needs, including Head Start Collaborative classrooms and a dual-language immersion program.
