Trumbull County Educational Service Center's Integrated Preschool Program for Age 3 Students at Niles Primary School

The Trumbull County Educational Service Center (TCESC) Preschool Program provides preschool services for both typically developing and students with disabilities ages 3-5.  This year, Niles Primary School will house an integrated preschool classroom for students age 3 that will be operated by Trumbull County ESC.
Preschool students with disabilities have received a school based multi- factor evaluation and meet one of the 14 ways a preschool child qualifies for special education in public school according to the Ohio Department of Education definitions. If you have questions about how to pursue an evaluation for your child, you can contact TCESC Early Childhood Supervisor, Mary Fredenburg, at 330-505-2800 extension 137.
Typically developing children must be registered with the Niles City school district. 
  • Child must be potty trained
  • Child is 3 years of age by October 1, 2024 
TCESC is a recipient of an Early Childhood Grant  (live link) from the Ohio Department of Education.  This grant provides funding for typically developing children who meet specific financial criteria.  All typical developing children families will be asked to complete the Early Childhood Education  Income Eligibility Screening Tool (live link). Results of the information on the form may result in a request for proof of income. 

Questions regarding registration may be emailed to [email protected] or by calling our Student Services Office at (330) 989-5095 ext. 4002.
