Nursery and Preschool Program


Three and four year old 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 the Creative Curriculum and Michigan Department of Education Standards to guide their observations, assessments, and planning.  All programs are licensed and teachers are qualified by the State of Michigan to teach young children. Teachers and assistants participate in 16 hours of professional development each school year.


Preschool and Nursery classes are offered at the Early Childhood Center at Duncan Elementary and Elementary Schools throughout the district.
