Oberlin Kids

Oberlin Kids LogoOberlin Kids is a collaborative of community and educational organizations designed to develop solutions to ensure all children enter school healthy and ready to learn. The collaborative looks to identify the needs of each pre-school aged child and its family and put them on a track to be prepared for kindergarten.  According to the Oberlin Kids collaborative partners, being ready to learn includes four key areas – having basic needs met, being developmentally ready, having adequate support in place for the child and family, and participating as a family in transition to kindergarten activities.

Oberlin Kids includes 15 partners and is designed to support the parents and families by providing the resources necessary to encourage a child’s development.

Families who reside in Oberlin can sign-up with Oberlin Kids to obtain free resources on child development, access to family events and play groups, health and nutritional resources and services, learning check-ups for their child, referral support, books and much more.
