Preschool Teachers

As a preschool teacher, your hard work ensures each of our preschoolers receives a quality education. Whether you’re a family childcare provider or a lead teacher at a large center, we appreciate the skill and passion you pour into our youngest learners.


Beginning January 2019, Cincinnati Preschool Promise is rolling out two new forms of support for lead teachers at our community-based preschool providers located within the Cincinnati Public School District boundaries. These supports are intended to support retention, recruitment, teachers’ well-being, and professional and educational development.
