OSU Kid Corps is designed to help at risk preschoolers enter school prepared to succeed. The program focuses specifically on enhancing preschoolers' cognitive development for pre-literacy competence and on providing experiences that foster the positive interactions with other children that are needed for the development of pro-social skills and the ability to control one's own behavior. The program is also designed to support families' involvement in their children's educational experiences.
