Early Preschool, 3-year-olds

Imaginative, Trailblazers

Our Imaginative and Trailblazers communities are filled with early experiences in preparation for the preschool setting. Implementing our HighScope classroom means our daily routine is a visual schedule that is predictable and planned based on the child’s interest. Work areas are intentional in our classroom as HighScope focuses on a plan-do-review routine. Large group time gives the opportunity for music and movement that create shared experiences in our community of children and teachers alike. Our small group gives the teacher a chance to key in on learning in more specific content areas. The day is complete with all meals provided family style and plenty of large motor in our gymnasium or on 1 of our outdoor play areas.

Rising S.T.A.R.S.

Our Rising S.T.A.R.S. classroom stands up to the acronym ‘Sharing Together and Reaching Success.” This classroom serves as our tuition based program for children ages four by September 1st of the calendar year. Our high scope curriculum is carried out by a lead and associate teacher who are educated, trained and monitored using a Program Quality Assessment. Children enjoy a community feeling filled with diversity and parent engagement through family night, conferences and a special fall fieldtrip. We transition to kindergarten readiness by taking a fieldtrip on our private bus to a local elementary school to play on the playground or snack in the cafeteria. Our facility partners with local educators to make the transition a success! Graduation ceremony each spring gives each child a feeling of excitement and accomplishment for their final year of preschool.

Great Start Readiness Program

The Great Start Readiness Program (GSRP) is Michigan’s state-funded preschool program for four-year-old children with factors which may place them at risk of educational failure. The program is administered by the Michigan Department of Education, Office of Great Start. Funding is allocated to each intermediate school district to administer the program locally.

Research on preschool programs and specific research on GSRP indicates that children provided with a high-quality preschool experience show significant positive developmental differences when compared to children from the same backgrounds who did not attend a high-quality preschool program.
