Preschool & School Guide 2020-2021


Some of the most common questions we receive include recommendations for the best preschools and schools in Toledo and surrounding areas. The Toledo Moms Team families are a diverse mix of public, private, virtual, and homeschool. We always suggest asking specific questions in your local neighborhood group as you will hear straight from other moms about their experiences, and of course, we recommend the research of the schools you are interested in. But we are here to list and highlight some of the education options Toledo has to offer!

Maumee Valley Country Day School

The Early Learning Center at Maumee Valley Country Day School is the perfect preschool for your child! 

We welcome children starting at 3 years through Kindergarten. In the Early Learning Center (ELC) we provide an environment that encourages independence while valuing the development of each individual child. Knowledge is constructed through flexible instruction, child-initiated play, and through the process of learning how to learn. 

In our classrooms, each minute of the day is a teaching opportunity. Our approach takes into careful consideration the way children process information and new experiences. At this age, playing is learning!

The ELC at Maumee Valley is a forest school inspired program. Our unique program infuses student-directed, nature-based learning with an academic curriculum that supports social-emotional learning. It is the first of its kind in Northwest Ohio!

We would love to answer your questions and tell you more about Maumee Valley Country Day School.
