Director's Message

Thank you for your interest in Red Raider Preschool. We are part of the Painesville City Local School District and are located within Maple Elementary School at 560 W. Jackson Street. Red Raider Preschool classes are taught by certified teachers.


Red Raider meets Ohio's Learning and Development Standards in order to prepare children for kindergarten. Students in our program engage in inquiry-based learning projects and themes. Research shows that young children learn best through hands-on, play-based learning centers. Children not only gain cognitive skills but also learn and practice social skills that enable them to collaborate with their peers in a positive environment.
