The Schoenbaum Family Center advances the field of early care and education to support every child’s healthy development. We do this within our walls and throughout the community. Our community programs focus on investing here in our own backyard to expand opportunities for every child and family to succeed.
We do this through working with local agencies and community partners throughout central Ohio to address critical needs in early care and education. Our community programs focus on key areas of early childhood, including access to education, professional development for teachers and administrators, and kindergarten readiness.
