RecSchool is a child-centered early childhood program for pre-kindergarten children operated by the Grove City Parks and Recreation Department and licensed by the State of Ohio.
The RecSchool staff is made up of established professionals with a variety of early childhood educational backgrounds. The program’s philosophy recognizes that children learn best through meaningful play, and the curriculum supports cognitive, physical and social development through art, literacy, music, math and science experiences. This nurturing environment prepares students for successful experiences in school and beyond by fostering competence, social skills, independence, creativity and a love of learning.
RecSchool is held at Gantz Barn in beautiful Gantz Park, 2255 Home Road. The program operates from September through May. Half-day classes are offered two or three days per week with morning classes meeting from 9-11:30 a.m. and afternoon classes meeting from 12:30-3 p.m. Children enrolled in the program must be 3 years old by Sept. 30 of the year they enter the program.
Registration for each school year begins the previous February. All parents interested in registering for the program must observe a class and meet with the RecSchool supervisor.
