I'm so thankful to be a service provider, this ace Ohio program has really saved my business. 

Paige Ross, the owner of iPlay in Shaker Heights, OH, faced a myriad of challenges operating her after-school programs following the pandemic. Now, as a Qualified Education Service Provider (QESP) in the state's Afterschool Child Enrichment (ACE) program, she sees 40 children per class vs. the 5 that showed up during the pandemic.

Listen to her share her experience with the program in our conversation below. 


It’s not easy operating a business with Covid and inflation challenges, but the Ohio ACE program “really saved my business.”


Getting up and running with Ohio ACE online is fast and convenient. 


Merit will "send you an email right back to answer any questions you have."


Hear more of how ACE is a game changer for Ohio children and businesses.
