How we help:
A family consultant is available to each family as an expert resource in child development. Parents meet regularly with the consultant, who also observes in the classroom and consults with teaching staff.
Parents, Teachers and Child Development Specialists work together to build a network to support effective communication.
Our focus is on social and emotional growth and the building of healthy relationships.
Individualized curriculum emerges from each child's interests and needs.
We work individually with each parent and child to strengthen the school experience and to enhance the parent-child tie.
Enrollment Process Rolling admission allows for the child to start school throughout the school year, classroom space permitting. The admission procedure begins with a parent meeting with one of the school's clinical directors to discuss whether this program would be helpful for the child. Once this meeting has taken place, the parents and child are invited to visit the classroom after hours, meet with the teachers and ask any questions that might arise. If this school best meets the needs of the child and family, according to State of Michigan licensing regulations, the following forms need to be completed before the child's first day of school:
