With a new school year approaching, applications for children birth to 4 years old are now being accepted at each of the nine preschool centers operated by WSOS. The centers located in Wood County include Genoa, Port Clinton, Fremont, Clyde, Pemberville, Bowling Green, and Perrysburg/Rossford.
Options available to parents who enroll their children at WSOS include full- and half-day classes and/or home visitation services. Those children who cannot be served at a center can be served through the home-based/home-visitation program. Services are also available at some centers for babies and toddlers through the Early Head Start program.
The WSOS Head Start/Early Childhood program is a comprehensive early childhood and family program. The program provides early childhood education, which is complemented by nutrition/health services for the child, and social services for the entire family. Families, who enroll in the program, benefit by having access to a variety of community resources, diverse parent education programs, and other social services that can assist the family to become self-sufficient.
Eligible families are those whose total annual income does not exceed 100 percent of the federal poverty guidelines for Early Head Start/Head Start and 200 percent for the Early Childhood Education Program. Children with special needs are also eligible for these services. Please call to verify the income levels.
All nine early childhood centers operated by WSOS in its four-county service area have earned the highest Step Up to Quality designation - Three Stars - awarded by the Ohio Department of Job and Family Services (DJFS), Children Services Division.
Children enrolled at these centers play, learn, and develop social skills at one of the best quality preschool centers in the state because they have met all the requirements ODJFS has put in place for centers to achieve.  
If your family could benefit from the WSOS Head Start/Early Childhood Development Program or you know a family that would, call WSOS at 1-800-775-9767 or visit the website, www.wsos.org.
