The CLC’s year-round Preschool Program serves children 3 to 5 years old (toilet learned).

Our classroom activities are provided by uniquely nurturing staff who structure each day’s activities using Creative Curriculum. This early childhood development program allows our teachers to challenge each child in preparation for a successful experience in Kindergarten, Elementary School and beyond! Each week has a theme upon which our curriculum is built and activities are planned.

Field Trips
Field trips are an important part of the CLC’s Preschool Program. These special outings provide young learners with a chance to experience our themed lessons out in the real world. During the summer months in particular, we take field trips on a weekly basis. Some of our typical destinations include:

  • Local Parks
  • Binder Park Zoo
  • Curious Kids Museum
  • Kalamazoo Valley Museum
  • Local Library
  • Mooville Dairy Farm

All care providers/teachers meet or exceed state licensing requirements. Many of our staff hold an associates or bachelors degree in Early Childhood Education and some are currently attending area colleges and universities in the field of education. All staff are trained in CPR and First Aid, and participate in ongoing professional development training experiences year-round.

Our staff-to-child ratio is 1:10
