Green Garden Preschool in Ann Arbor is locally owned and operated by three teachers who saw a need for a high quality preschool for the more advanced child. Ms. Peggy, Ms. Lisa and Ms. Kasey make a positive difference in the lives of children through supportive relationships and assist them in achieving their highest potential as they grow to become confident, competent and caring individuals. At Green Garden Preschool, our goal is to never teach toward the group but toward the individual.
Green Garden Preschool uses state approved Creative Curriculum complete with lesson plans, assessments, progress reports, portfolios with anecdotes and monthly newsletters for parents to use as a guide. We follow the Department of Education with the use of PQA (Program Quality Assessment) and TQRIS (Tiered Quality Rating and Improvement System) to ensure that our program remains at the highest quality. Our staff has worked for four years with the Washtenaw ISD and the State Department of Education before deciding to become a private preschool. References for our staff and program can be requested from our previous program as well as from our past parents.
Green Garden Preschool is committed to multicultural education. This means we share in a commitment to human rights, dignity of the individual, and social justice. We strive to create a program that truly reflects the lives of our children, families, staff, and community. By recognizing the impact culture has on families, we will make every effort to provide culturally responsive education by affirming human differences. We seek to recognize, appreciate, and respect the uniqueness of each child.
Children learn through hands on play and structured activities in our well-organized learning centers. Our classroom is organized into indoor and outdoor "learning environments." This is where the children can find items to explore and learn with that are preschool-age appropriate. Dialogue between children, parents, and teachers is encouraged. Your feedback and input are important to us, and helps to ensure that both you and your child are satisfied with the education and care provided by Green Garden Preschool.
