Director's Message
Thank you for your interest in Red Raider Preschool.  We are part of the Painesville City Local School District and are located at 350 Cedarbrook Drive.  The preschool will move to Maple Elementary at the start of the 23-24 school year.  Maple is located at 560 W. Jackson Street in Painesville.   Red Raider Preschool classes are taught by certified teachers.
We meet Ohio's Learning and Development Standards in order to prepare children for kindergarten.  Students in our program engage in inquiry-based learning projects and themes. Research shows that young children learn best through hands-on, play-based learning centers. Children not only gain cognitive skills but also learn and practice social skills that enable them to collaborate with their peers in a positive environment.
