Ursuline Preschool & Kindergarten was founded in 1963 by the Ursuline Sisters of Youngstown.  Our school offers the highest level of education available for your children. 

We are licensed by the Ohio Department of Education (ODE), and all of our teachers’ credentials exceed state minimums. All of our support staff also are licensed and credentialed by the ODE.  Our Preschool follows Early Learning Standards utilizing ACCESS Curriculum. We set students on the path to success.

As one of the longest-running preschool and kindergarten programs in the Mahoning Valley, we have educated many area professionals in our faith-based, caring setting. We offer cutting-edge technology in every classroom and have a dedicated technology teacher.

Safety is a priority. All of our teachers and staff have current BCI and FBI background checks and are first aid and CPR certified. Our School Safety Plan is approved by the ODE, and we offer secured entrances/exits and security cameras on premises.

Together we give your precious child the best start in life!
