With a new school year approaching, applications for children birth to 4 years old are now being accepted at each of the nine preschool centers operated by WSOS. The centers located in Ottawa County include Genoa and Port Clinton.
Options available to parents who enroll their children at WSOS include full and half-day classes and/or home visitation services. Those children who cannot be served at a center can be served through the home-based/home-visitation program. Services are also available at some centers for babies and toddlers through the Early Head Start program.
