The Council for Economic Opportunities in Greater Cleveland delivers high-quality education for children in Cuyahoga County, but at one center, children can take that learning to a special place outside.
Last year, CEOGC opened a certified outdoor classroom at its Louis Stokes Head Start Center. The outdoor classroom provides a space for learning through play for the students to enjoy year-round. The outdoor version of a classroom was certified by Nature Explore, a research-based initiative for children and families to develop a love for nature.
The first-of-its-kind classroom provides children with the opportunity to grow in their understanding of the environment. It also allows teachers to be creative with lesson plans giving them a way to incorporate nature into learning – something more difficult to do in a typical classroom.
CEOGC continues to plan for the future, hoping to build more outdoor classrooms at other sites.
The learning through play starts today. The Head Start preschool program serves the entire family and instills a lifelong love of learning. Our dedicated teachers and staff look forward to working with your family to make your children’s preschool experience extraordinary.
