Tuition-Based Preschool

The Tuition Preschool program is designed for children who would benefit from an all-day learning environment. This program provides a wide variety of stimulating activities that expose children to following a daily routine enriched in activities that support literacy, math, fine and gross motor function, art, pretend play, and daily outside activities. Class size maximum is 16 students with a Lead Teacher and Paraprofessional for a ratio of 1:8

Great Start Readiness Program (GSRP)

The Great Start Readiness Program (GSRP) is Michigan’s state-funded preschool program for four-year-old children who fall below 250% of the Federal Poverty Level (FPL).  The program is administered by the Michigan Department of Education, Office of Great Start. The full-day program meets Monday thru Thursday.  An enriching and engaging curriculum provides for learning experiences in the areas of social-emotional development, math and literacy, fine and gross motor skill development, science and art experiences. There is a rest time each day and a nutritious breakfast, lunch and a snack are provided daily. Class size maximum is 16 students with a Lead and Associate Teacher for a ratio of 1:8. This program is offered at no-cost to qualifying families.

Early Childhood Special Education

Michigan Early Childhood Special Education (ECSE) services include special instruction and related services provided to young children, ages three through five, who qualify under the Individuals with Disabilities Act (IDEA, Part B, Section 619). Through its 56 intermediate school districts (ISDs) Michigan's ECSE program ensures the provision of a Free and Appropriate Public Education (FAPE) to all eligible children at no cost to their families, and in the Least Restrictive Environment (LRE). LRE means that young children with disabilities should receive services in typical community-based early childhood settings and programs whenever possible, and only go to more restrictive or specialized settings when their individual needs require it.

Head Start

Head Start is a Federally funded program that promotes the school readiness of children from birth to age five from low-income families by enhancing their cognitive, social, and emotional development. Head Start programs provide a learning environment that supports children's growth in many areas such as language, literacy, and social and emotional development. Head Start emphasizes the role of parents as their child's first and most important teacher. This program helps build relationships with families that support family well-being.  Programs are full-day or half-day and meet Monday-Friday. This program is offered at no-cost to qualifying families. Please contact (586) 469-5215 for more information.
