ABOUT OUR PROGRAM

Beechnau Tuition Preschool is a non-profit, tuition-based preschool program.  We are licensed by the State of Michigan, Department of Human Services.

Our programs are child-centered and use the Creative Curriculum and Zoophonics. Students flourish in supportive, engaging environments with teachers who communicate regularly with families, encourage enthusiasm for learning, pride of accomplishment, and the joy of discovery. 

In an effort to meet the needs of our community, we provide Preschool programs for students that will be three and four years of age by September 1, 2019.  Our staff consists of well-qualified and caring professionals dedicated to meeting the developmental needs of the preschool child.  The classroom is directed by a teacher and a teacher associate.  Both continue to take at least 16 hours of training and professional development every year.  Our staff is selected on their knowledge of early childhood development as well as their enthusiasm and ability to relate to young children.

PROGRAM MISSION STATEMENT

Our mission is to create a positive environment by assisting in the physical, cognitive, social, and emotional development of each of the children we service.  We aim to provide a safe, supportive, and nurturing environment where all children can express their own creativity. Our hope is to instill a life-long love for learning in each of our students.
