Build Ohio

Build Ohio is now the website for the latest information on the Early Learning Challenge Grant.  Formerly Build Ohio was an independent collaboration of public and private partners, and the work of the organization was transitioned to the Early Childhood Cabinet. Ohio remains a Build state, and continues to contribute to the Build national movement that is redefining early childhood for our children and their families.

Every Child Matters

Every parent sees endless possibilities and great hope in the eyes of a child. As a nation, when we look at today’s children, we see tomorrow’s leaders — scientists, teachers, doctors and diplomats. But for our children to thrive and America to stay competitive in the 21st-century global economy, we must support their development, their families and the public policies that work for both.

Do you have a child who is no longer a good fit at your preschool?
Does this child’s challenges put them at risk for expulsion?
Now there’s support available to you.
The Ohio Preschool Expulsion Prevention Partnership (OPEPP) is a collaboration among the Ohio Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services (OhioMHAS), Big Lots Behavioral Health Services at Nationwide Children’s Hospital and local early childhood mental health providers. Funded by OhioMHAS as part of the Whole Child Matters initiative to decrease the high rate of preschool expulsion, its goal is to reduce preschool expulsions by providing on-site consultation to licensed early learning programs.

The Ohio Preschool Expulsion Prevention Partnership is a resource to help any licensed preschools and child care providers in Ohio with preschool-age children whose behavior poses challenges in the preschool setting, putting them at risk for expulsion.
