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.
Grand Ledge Public Schools' Little Comets Preschool programs incorporate:
Michigan Early Childhood Standards of Quality
Every Day Math
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.
Grand Ledge Public Schools does not provide any type of health or accident insurance for injuries incurred by your child at school. We encourage all families to consider accident coverage for their children, especially before the child participates in any interscholastic sports or if your current primary health insurance has a high deductible, co-insurance clause, and/or limitations on medical benefits. However, this coverage is strictly voluntary! If you feel you have adequate health insurance coverage for your student, you do not have to participate. The voluntary coverage is provided through Student Assurance Services, Inc., independent of Grand Ledge Public Schools. All questions regarding coverage should be directed to Student Assurance Services, Inc., at (651) 439-7098, or toll-free at 1-800-328-2739. More information can be found here.
