Blended Preschool at Dayton Schools: The Dayton School District provides a teacher for half of the day during the school year (Monday-Thursday) and Children, Inc. provides a credentialed teacher to assist.  After the half day, the Children, Inc. teacher stays with the children to extend the preschool program to full day.  Another credentialed Children, Inc. teacher joins them to maintain a low teacher-to-child ratio and ensure personal learning for the children.  The entire program takes place on-site at Lincoln Elementary in the City of Dayton.  The program also offers extended hours (7 a.m.-6 p.m.) to accommodate working families.
