Winter 2009 Enrollment

Happy New Year everyone!

We have a few spaces available at the Nursery School for Winter 2009 enrollment. If you are looking for a fun, enriching program for your preschooler (ages 2.5 through 5), please give us a call (313-822-3211), and come to visit the school.

We know you'll love our teacher, Ms. Michelle (we do!). Ms. Michelle always has interesting activities planned for the kids, including crafts, games, movement and music, gym time, dress up, and puzzles. There is a rice table and a water table too, for added fun. We also go on regular field trips to interesting places in the area such as orchards, The Henry Ford, roller skating, and many other destinations coming up.

Below is some information about the school. Give us a call, we would love to hear from you!

Established in 1948, the Jefferson Cooperative Nursery School is Michigan's oldest cooperative pre-school. Designed for children ages 2-1/2 to 5, it is a high-quality, half-day program with classes held from 9 to 11:30 a.m. either 3 or 4 days a week depending on enrollment.

Philosophy • The preschool offers a play-oriented, structured program designed to foster independence, self-esteem and internal control. The goal is to prepare children to enter kindergarten with the skills to handle a wide variety of academic, social and interpersonal situations.

Instruction • The teacher is educated in child growth and development and has years of experience working with preschoolers.

Beautiful Facility • Located in the architecturally stunning Jefferson Avenue Presbyterian Church in Indian Village, the preschool features a spacious classroom with extensive toys, arts & crafts, imaginative play area, water table, rice table, playscape and indoor gym.

Ideal Ratio • Enrollment is typically between 5 to 10 children, allowing for an intimate teacher/parent/child ratio.

Co-op Requirements • Parents assist the teacher at class time two to three times each month, provide healthy snacks, as well as attend monthly meetings. Depending upon class size, “non-co-op” enrollment may be available for an additional fee.

Tuition • (Sept-June co-op rate): $1500/year for 3 days/week; $2000/year for 4 days/week.
