    Teacher Message


    Hello Preschool Families,

    During this time of change, we are reminded of the things that are most important to us. We are fortunate to have an amazing team of Early Childhood Professionals and families with which to travel this unexpected journey. As we work together, to find our new "norm," we want to assure you that although we are physically apart, we are working to stay connected, committed and responsive to our community.

    Here are a few things we know you can expect:
    You will hear from your child's teaching team, If you need help, we will do our best to help you, While we may not be able to see your child or family in person, we still care about each and everyone of you and will do our best to support you during this time of transition, We will continue to work within the guidelines for optimal safety for our children and staff

    Michelle and Jo Ann will have office hours. This will provide an opportunity for us to connect with you.
    Michelle will be available by phone at 734-395-7367, on Monday and Wednesday during the hours of 1:00pm and 3:00pm.
    Jo Ann will be available by phone at 734-649-1798 on Tuesday and Thursday during the hours of 9:00am and 11:00am.

Things To Do At Home

  • The EMU Children's Institute created the following document containing many great links to on-line resources.



    We understand that the closings of schools and community events
    has turned many of our lives upside down temporarily. While you
    are home with your child(ren), we wanted to share some resources
    to help fill your days with fun and learning.
    Attached are some general resources, as well as developmentally
    appropriate activities that are divided by age-groups so you can
    choose activities that are best for your child.
