Little Comets Preschool Program

The Little Comets Preschool Program offers a play-based kindergarten readiness preschool curriculum that teaches intellectual, social and emotional development, language skills, positive self-concepts and self expression through large and small group learning.  Preschool children are encouraged to develop independence through daily living and oral language skills through guided and spontaneous interactions.  Children explore, experiment and engage in themed activities that are planned for a range of levels in each of the developmental domains.

Early Childhood Philosophy

We believe it is important for children to have learning experiences with peers and caring adults in a fun, positive and safe environment.  Early learning opportunities that occur through play-based, child focused programs prepare children to be successful, life-long learners.

Curriculum 

Grand Ledge Public Schools' Little Comets Preschool programs incorporate:

blue ink splash Michigan Early Childhood Standards of Quality

blue ink splash Every Day Math

blue ink splash Zoo-Phonics

blue ink splash Handwriting Without Tears

These programs are used as a blueprint for planning and implementing a developmentally appropriate research-based curriculum, which provides a solid foundation for learning through social, emotional, cognitive, and physical development.  Full-day preschoolers visit specials classes throughout the week.  Preschool specials include art, gym, library and music.  Full day preschool children participate in musical therapy classes.  Both half day and full day students enjoy monthly story time visits from Delta Township Library staff.
