East Toledo Family Center

Preschool | Hope Toledo | Head Start

and Goals

The ETFC Preschool program was established to provide a safe, fun, socially interactive, high-quality, educational environment for children 3-5 years of age. The staff recognizes the importance of balanced growth, so they provide opportunities for social, emotional, cognitive, and physical growth through a variety of creative and educational experiences. Children are encouraged to learn and explore at their own pace in literacy rich areas that interest them. We are pleased that you have chosen to include us in the development of your child.


A child is considered eligible for the ETFC preschool programs only after the administrator confirms the space is available, they meet the age requirements of turning 3 years of age before Sept. 30 of the current school year, are toilet trained, not yet age eligible for Kindergarten and completed all required paperwork including documentation needed.

A family can receive funding to help with the cost of preschool through ODE Early Childhood Grant, Hope Toledo, Head Start, or Ohio Dept. of Job and Family Services Child Care. If you do not qualify for no cost preschool through the above agencies after providing income verification, tuition rates are available based on a sliding fee schedule with family income. (Director will verify income qualifications).
