2022-2023 Peer Model Enrollment

We are excited to begin enrollment for the 22-23 school year on March 1st. Typically developing peer models are an important part of our preschool programming. Peers must be at least three years of age and are required to be fully potty trained. Peers will attend a screening before the enrollment process continues. The first two peer screening dates will be Friday, March 18th, and Friday, April 22nd. 

Step 1 complete a peer model application: Peer Model Application 22-23

Step 2 Once the peer model application is completed it will be reviewed by a staff member and an email will be sent to the email address given with a link to sign up for a screening. 

Step 3 Upon completion of the screening you will receive instructions on how to complete enrollment. This involves an online portion through Final Forms and bringing in required paperwork Registration Checklist and Child-Medical-Statement. Bringing in paperwork will require an appointment that will be scheduled as you complete the online portion.

The SWL Early Learning Center Recognized as a 5 STAR
Quality Learning and Development Program

In recognition of a commitment to quality and an ongoing dedication to the learning and development of children, the SWL Early Learning Center has received a Five-Star Step Up To Quality Award from the state of Ohio.  

Step Up To Quality is Ohio’s rating system for learning and development programs. Participating programs can earn a one to five-star rating. In addition to meeting all standards of a four-star rating, programs with five stars may also:

  • Have lower staff/child ratios.
  • Use child assessment results to plan activities that best support learning and development goals for each child.
  • Share assessment results and create goals for children.
  • Develop plans to support children as they transition to a new classroom or educational setting.
  • Work with other organizations or businesses within the community to support children and their families.
  • Have an active and organized parent volunteer group.
  • Use input from families and community partners’ to inform the program’s continuous improvement process.
  • Have accreditation by an approved organization. 

The SWL Early Learning Center is proud to be a five-star program. We know that children have approximately 1,892 days from birth until school starts, and every day matters. It is important to us that children develop their self-confidence, social and emotional skills, and a love of learning.

Research confirms that the first five years of a child’s life has a direct impact on how children develop emotional well-being, in addition to, learning and social skills. For these reasons, the SWL Early Learning Center is committed to improving early childhood opportunities for all children.
