Infant and Toddler Program
Families in need of care for very young children (6 weeks to 3 years old) can enroll in our Infant/Toddler program located at the Community Education Center. Activities that match the developmental needs of the child are ongoing throughout the day. Infants and toddlers receive gentle care, nurturing and support as they explore and interact with caregivers, other children and playthings. Routines such as feeding, sleeping, and changing are a part of the daily routine and take place in a relaxed, age appropriate manner.
Full Day Preschool
Full Day Preschool (3 years to 5 years old) is available at three locations in the school district (Duncan, Messmore & Community Education Center). Children are welcomed into inviting classrooms by experienced, caring teachers. The classroom environment provides learning opportunities throughout the day. Children interact with each other and teachers during free choice, small and large group activities. Literacy and math skills are introduced and practiced in all activity areas including art, music, housekeeping, story time and block play. Teachers use Creative Curriculum and Michigan Department of Education Standards to guide their observations, assessments and planning.
