Full Day Preschool Enrichment

Our full day, year ’round preschool has been awarded a 4-star rating from the State of Michigan’s Great Start to Quality rating, a governing organization that has established high program standards of quality for early childhood programs in Michigan.  This is one of the highest ratings in the Rockford area!  The star rating also helps you, as a parent, be confident that the trust you have put in our program is well placed!   Ratings are available to anyone using Great Start to Quality, a web-based searchable database for licensed child care and preschools that also provides information about area resources that serve young families and children.  To access information about Great Start to Quality, go to https://www.greatstarttoquality.org/

Our year long program for three & four year olds is ideal for working families.  Our full day preschool is open from 7:00am – 6:00pm and includes a variety of developmentally appropriate learning experiences in social, emotional, physical and cognitive growth areas and is geared to prepare young children for kindergarten.  Other program features include field trips, planned outdoor & gym activities, rest time, breakfast and snacks.  Our well-trained staff are skilled in the field of early childhood and have earned a well-respected reputation in the community.  We are proud of our staff and the relationships they have built with families.  Children must be 3 and/or 4 by September 1 of the current school year. Our staff are trained in early childhood, CPR, and first aid.

Enrollment is a minimum set two days per week at a cost of $45.00 per day.  New students only, a $100.00 non-refundable deposit is due at the time of enrollment and will be applied to the cost of tuition.  Existing students only, a $100.00 non-refundable deposit will be applied to your Family Access account and will be applied to the cost of tuition.

This program can also be used in conjunction with Montessori and Spanish Preschool at a reduced rate, if space is available.  A separate online registration is required for those programs.  Please contact our office at 616.863.6560 for more information.  You can also visit us on Facebook.
