Children First of Cleveland practices equal opportunities in its hiring process, enrollment process and service delivery. We believe these policies create diversity within our Center and establish a strong foundation of multiplicity that enhances the lives of everyone involved in the Center. Enrollment is open to everyone without regard to race, religion, gender, national origin or sexual orientation. This open enrollment process also includes individuals with disabilities. Since our daily plans and schedules take into account the unique needs and developmental levels of all children, we are uniquely qualified to serve families whose child may have a special need.

As part of the enrollment process, we invite you to visit the Center to spend time getting to know us. The Executive Director will meet personally with each prospective family to share information about some of the following topics:

  • Ratios and Group Size

  • Qualification of Staff

  • Training and Education of Staff

  • Health and Safety in the Center

  • Curriculum

  • Screening and Assessment

  • Step Up To Quality Rating System

  • Child Guidance and Conflict Resolution

  • Family Involvement

  • Community Resources

  • General Operations


We seek to answer any questions that family and children may have at this time.

During your family’s visit, you will visit your child’s new classroom and meet your child’s Teachers as well as any other available staff. As your interest continues, we will provide you with a written copy of all of our policies and procedures as well as all necessary paperwork. We will also discuss financial arrangements and opportunities for scholarships and discounts.
