Classes at Treasures To Grow On Christian Preschool begin the week of September 14, 2020. Open enrollment is underway and there are still openings in some classes. Treasures has developed a detailed plan for addressing Covid-19 issues in the preschool environment with the goals of reducing risk and keeping our students and staff healthy. Based on recommendations and guidelines from the State of Michigan , our “Covid-19 Preparedness and Response Plan” is available upon request. If you are interested in enrolling your child , please contact the school and request an information packet. Enrollment forms can also be found on this website.
On March 16, 2020, Treasures To Grow On suspended preschool classes due to the Covid-19 situation. Governor Whitmer eventually extended the school closure through the end of the academic year. We are disappointed that our school year ended prematurely and without any advance notice. However, we are supporting our parents by providing at-home-learning packets for many of our students. Our staff is also available by phone and/or email to support parents as they are working with their children. Together, we will make the best of an unfortunate situation. We acknowledge that Almighty God is in control and we anticipate better days ahead!
Preschool research strongly indicates that smaller class sizes are associated with greater educational effectiveness and other benefits. In smaller classes, children are more likely to be engaged, take greater initiative, exert more effort, and are more attentive. Conversely, children in small preschool classes are less likely to be withdrawn and less likely to disrupt class. Small classes allow teachers to spend more time supporting children’s interests, explorations, and problem solving skills. When there are fewer children in the class teachers can more closely mediate children’s social interactions and language development. Finally students in small classes experience health and safety benefits as well. (Larger groups are associated with higher rates of infections and greater risk of injury.) Treasures To Grow On Preschool is committed to keeping class sizes small. There are 8 children in our T ,Th Junior class (age 2 1/2+). There are 10 children in our MWF Senior class (age 3 1/2+). There are 12 children in our M-Th Beginner-garten class (age 4 1/2+). Two teachers are present in all classes making our Teacher to Child ratio the best around.
We at Treasures To Grow On Christian Preschool wish YOU and your family the best Christmas ever. May God truly bless your celebration of the birth of Jesus with peace and joy that surpasses human understanding. The Father sent the Son to be the Savior of the world. John 4:14 Happy Birthday Jesus!
