A proven, traditional approach

Always putting your children first, The Pembroke School builds on a traditional approach to care and nurturing in a way all parents want their children to develop. We place emphasis on a child's happiness while providing a comfortable atmosphere and environment in which the child can grow, learn, and excel to the outer bounds of his or her potential. An extremely positive atmosphere allows children to be loved and grow socially, emotionally, and academically. Small class sizes allow for individualized learning for each child.

classroom excellence

An overwhelming percentage of our Pre-Kindergarten graduates perform at a level near the top of their Kindergarten class. Our program has excelled over other preschools and is recognized by the Ohio Department of Jobs and Family Services to achieve the Step Up To Quality Award.

We participate in the highly accredited Devereux Early Childhood Initiative (DECA) program to enhance children's resiliency and to promote high levels of initiative, self-control, focus, and positive social behaviors.
