Preschool

We must announce our return to in person learning has been postponed.  When the elementary schools return to in person learning on December 9, preschool will do so as well.  During this time, we will offer a virtual preschool option that is just right for your young child. 

Enroll your child in our district preschool, where your child will love to think, to try, and to wonder why!  TO REGISTER, YOU MUST RETURN ALL REGISTRATION DOCUMENTS TO THE PRESCHOOL OFFICE WITH YOUR REGISTRATION FEE.

Walled Lake Schools Preschool programs would typically invite you to visit a preschool classroom prior to enrolling your child. Due to COVID, that is not possible.  We currently have space available for children only at Dublin and Mary Helen Guest elementary schools.  We hope to offer more once the world is safer!  We will share classroom videos:

High Scope Child Observation Record (COR) - this is used throughout the year.  Anecdotal notes are taken daily, and the teachers use that information when they create their daily plans.

Parent Conferences:  

There is a fall conference, led by the children, to help you get to know our program and what the children are doing.

There is a spring conference, where we will share the Family Report from COR. These generally occur just prior to Kindergarten registration.

At the end of the year, we will share the year end Family Report, and send home any portfolio items that the children have created through the year.

Why choose Walled Lake Preschool?

  • We know that research has shown us that the lessons of yesterday are not what our children need today.  That is why we create plans daily, using a valid and reliable curriculum.
  • To be prepared for the common core, children need to know more than how to complete a worksheet or do the same art project as the rest of the class.  We encourage individuality, we support outside the box thinking, and we give children the chance to make decisions and be leaders.
