Preschool 4th Quarter Update for 2023-2024

Welcome to the Knox County Educational Service Center PreSchool Information Page

  • The Knox County Educational Service Center (Knox ESC) operates a preschool for the East Knox Local School District in the East Knox Elementary building. Students from East Knox are welcome to apply there. The preschool program maintains classrooms with low student-to-teacher ratios and supports general education students and students with special needs.

    Classes operate Monday-Thursday with an AM or PM session and follow the East Knox Local Schools calendar. Tuition is on a sliding scale and based on household income.
    The Knox ESC has a long history of successfully operating preschools around the county and has been awarded a high quality rating in Ohio's Step Up To Quality program. ESC classrooms are taught by highly qualified, licensed teachers and each classroom has a teacher assistant.  Students engage in play-based learning while working to master preschool skills in order to prepare for kindergarten.

    To enroll your child in a preschool classroom at East Knox, contact Knox ESC at 740-393-6980 or select Knox ESC Preschool Enrollment. (link)
    Knox ESC continues to provide special education services to eligible students in other classrooms around the district, such as Knox County Head Start.
