    Hello Preschool Families,

    Unfortunately, at the start of this year, we will not be able to meet you in person. Please know that our entire staff is excited to work with your family virtually until it is safe to return to in-person instruction.

    Over the next few weeks you will receive communication regarding technology and material pickup; you will be contacted by your child’s teacher, you will be asked to attend an orientation where you will meet your teaching team, and you will regularly receive updated weekly communication.

    In the meantime, if you have any questions regarding any of our Early Childhood Programs, please feel to reach out. We are happy to answer any of your questions.

     Looking forward to a new and exciting school year.

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.
