How Can Your Child Benefit?
Our preschool emphasizes the social and emotional growth of the children. We will introduce shapes, colors, numbers, and letters. It is our intent to build habits and share experiences with your child, which will help them learn these skills when he/she is ready.
Who Operates the Preschool?
Our preschool is a nonprofit program operated through Kentwood Public Schools. The tuition paid by parents pays the instructors, buys teaching supplies and materials, and allows the children to go on fieldtrips. We are licensed by the State of Michigan.
