You can also view past ODE inspection reports for all licensed child care programs in the State of Ohio. The reports will show non-compliance and Serious Risk Rule non-compliance – Here is the 2021 ODE Preschool annual Licensing report. Any concerns or complaints can be addressed to the Ohio Department of Education Ombudsman: (866)-886-3537 option #4
