Muskingum Valley Preschool - Perry County

It is the mission of Muskingum Valley Preschool Programs to connect with children and families to create high quality, affordable programs that contribute to Kindergarten readiness for all students.

Muskingum Valley Preschool in Perry County has several locations and programs to serve children in Crooksville Exempted Village Schools, New Lexington Local Schools and Northern Local Schools.  We serve both children who are typically developing and children with an identified special need. Children enrolled must be three years of age and cannot be five years old by August 1 of the current school year, unless on an Individualized Education Plan (IEP).

In general, our preschools operate according to the local elementary schedule and bus routes.  We provide a breakfast and afternoon snack.  Most of our sites offer a hot lunch through the school lunch program.

We believe children learn best through play and hands-on experiences that encourage self-discovery, confidence and independence.  There is a balance of adult-directed and child-selected activities.  Opportunities are planned to be respectful of each child’s age, ability and family background.  Our program offers health and educational services to all children.  Specialized services will be offered to children with specialized needs.
