PreK Academy

PreK Academy is a full day program designed for children 4 – 5 years of age. For 2017 - 2018, It will be conveniently located at the corner of Pontiac Trail and Decker Roads at Mary Helen Guest Elementary. There is easy access to M-5 and I-96/275.

The day is designed to provide many opportunities for children to stretch their wings, make choices, and activate their brains through active learning and plan, do and review. Research based evidence supports the High/Scope Curriculum used in this classroom. Field trips are taken throughout the year on a school bus, and visitors come to the center. Parents are always welcome to volunteer in the program.  We love to learn with you!

This is an amazing program that is better than day care as well as very reasonably priced. The class is 8:30 – 2:30, Monday through Friday. Child may attend all five days, or choose the Monday-Wednesday-Friday option or the Tuesday-Thursday option. Children bring their lunch and a snack, and will have an opportunity for rest after lunch. Before and After Care are available through Prime Time Care. Be sure to call and make an appointment to visit 248.956.5080.
