Our Young Preschool Program (2 ½ to 3 years) is based on learning through play. Children work through developmentally-appropriate individual and group activities.
Learning through play encourages large and small muscle development to help your child grow.
We also include dramatic play and creative free play designed to help your child find new activities they enjoy.
Through art, music, literature and science we spark your child's imagination. Our activities keep your child physically and intellectually engaged while satisfying their curiosity!
We also focus on communication skills (both speaking and listening) and problem-solving techniques. These are learned through our play-based activities as well as casual interactions with teachers and other students.
Children are encouraged to talk to each other about conflict and problems. Some children at this age may be shy or choose to watch at the boundaries of an activity. We create space for individual differences in levels of activity.
Independence is encouraged through self-directed (free choice) activities and self-help during routine activities such as eating, toileting, etc. Your child begins to gain freedom while under the watchful eye of our professional child care teachers. We are ready to support and assist in your child’s ongoing development.
Michigan Preschool Curriculum
The Preschool Curriculum (3 to 4 years) focuses on readiness and socialization skills. We begin preparing your child for Kindergarten with varied exposure to academics.
Our Livonia Child Care Center provides your child with a wide range of learning opportunities. Throughout their preschool years, your child will meet challenges intellectually, socially and emotionally. Our professional preschool teachers are there to help them along the way.
Your child will also spend time continuing to develop their large and small motor skills. We have learning and activity centers available to enhance your child’s growth and cater to their learning style.
We know that not every child learns in the same way. Some learn by watching, some through listening and some are hands-on learners. Children can even be a combination of the three.
With this in mind, we offer dramatic play, art, math, writing, reading, science and foreign language centers. These well-appointed areas accommodate different learning styles.
Teacher-directed activities introduce educational concepts, reinforce creativity and socialization. Children are encouraged to express independence through self-directed activities (writing, art, dramatic play, etc.).
In introducing the elements of basic academics, our goal is to better prepare your child for kindergarten and help provide them with a smooth transition.
Preschool Opportunities For Children
As your child prepares for Kindergarten we bring them the safe and loving environment necessary for stimulation and growth. As they grow more comfortable with their peers and teachers, they begin to express themselves and find new ways of learning.
Our team focuses on creating the best possible environment for your child, and we work every day to ensure your child's confidence in school continues to grow.
