WELCOME TO OUR PRESCHOOL AND LATCHKEY PROGRAM
Columbia Preschool is licensed by the State of Michigan and has served the families of the Columbia School District and surrounding areas since 1983. The goal of the program is to provide a safe, stimulating, and nurturing environment for young children while enhancing their social, emotional, physical, intellectual, and creative development. We believe:
That young children learn through discovery play.
In the importance of active learning.
In providing a variety of hands-on materials and experiences to meet individual interests, needs, and abilities
In children working toward independence and cooperation.
In the importance of process rather than a product.
In the importance of supporting early literacy skills and reading to children
In the importance of the home-school connection and value the parents as the child's first teacher
Activities Include: Art, Music/Movement, Social Skills, Sensory, Dramatic Play, Cognitive Skills, Open Snack, Free Choice, Literacy, Large Group/Small Group Science/Discovery, Individualized Learning Blocks/Construction.
Parents must provide a completed health form with proof of immunizations and an information card by the child's first day.
Children must be toilet trained.
Tuition is paid monthly.
