Early Childhood Program 

The Trumbull County Educational Service Center oversees the evaluation process and the delivery of services to preschool children in the Trumbull County area. Our staff of preschool teachers, psychologists and therapists work together to serve preschool children with special needs as well as typically developing children within a school setting. In order to delivery high quality services to all children, our teaching staff holds licenses from the Ohio Department of Education in both early childhood and special education.
 
TCESC provides preschool special education services in both center based classrooms and itinerant services.  preschool classrooms are located in public school buildings throughout Trumbull County.  Our classrooms provide high quality early childhood education for both special needs children and typically-developing children. Our itinerant teacher serves children in community preschools such as Head Start and privately-owned centers.
Philosophy
All young children are unique individuals who are born ready to learn. The relationships children form are influential, as the interactions they have with teachers and other school personnel greatly affect learning. Env
ironments matter since the classroom community, classroom arrangement and material available support learning. Our young learners have a variety of experiences designed to help all of them enter kindergarten ready for success.
