Indian Run Preschool began in 1989. We are very excited to be celebrating our 31st year serving the Dublin Community. Our program has grown as a ministry of Indian Run United Methodist Church. Currently, we have 115 students and 10 teachers in our program.
We provide the children with a Christian and Play-Based program giving an exceptional learning experience to all our children. Our program runs from September through May, and we offer a variety of classes depending on the age of your child. Our children attend either morning or afternoon sessions from 2-5 days a week. The child's day may be extended by attending Lunch Bunch for 1 extra hour per day (this will be decided as we get closer to the 2021-2022 school year based on Covid 19 concerns).
All staff meet and exceed ODJFS (Ohio Department of Jobs and Family Services) qualifications and trained in Child Abuse, Communicable Disease, First Aid, CPR and an additional 6 hours per year in Child Development, Ohio Early Learning Content Standards or other related topics.
All of the staff have degrees with the majority in the field of Education or Early Childhood, and some also have Masters levels of Education.
We are a licensed center under the Ohio Department of Jobs and Family Services.
