Early Learning Program Guidelines

Ohio’s Early Learning Program Guidelines have been crafted with an eye to the future. The desired outcomes are grounded in current research and evaluation studies, developed out of the wisdom and guidance of experts, and inspired by the good work of the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC), Head Start Performance Standards (HSPS), and the Division for Early Childhood of the Council for Exceptional Children (DEC).

The sense of urgency to accomplish what may be beyond our reach exists because our children deserve our attention and, as early childhood leaders, teachers, friends and mentors, we are part of the hope for a brighter future. We have an obligation to give the very best to our children and to their families because the investment in children is not only about the future, but also about what matters "right now in the present."
