Little Lions Preschool and Child Care
We are delighted to be able to offer early childhood programs that enhance the educational experience of our youngest learners. Little Lions Child Care is pleased to announce that we have current openings for preschoolers ages 3-5! Space is extremely limited, so contact the Little Lions office today to secure your child's placement in the program! If you are interested in infant and toddler enrollment, please contact Little Lions, located at Fuller Street Elementary School, to be placed on the 2019-2020 waiting list. Little Lions will call waiting list participants as openings become available. Waiting list enrollment is first come, first served. Being placed on the waiting list does not guarantee enrollment. If you have any questions about the program, please contact email@example.com.
Little Lions is now accepting DHHS Child Development and Care benefits. If you would like to apply for benefits you would need to apply online at https://www.michigan.gov/mibridges or visit your local DHHS office. If you plan to use DHHS payments, please let the Little Lions office know upon enrollment as DHHS does not backpay for care.
While cash and check payments will always be an option, we have recently expanded our payment options to also include Tuition Express. Tution Express is an online option which allows families to pay from home by entering their credit card information or at the center by swiping their card on our card swipe. We can also automatically withdraw your tuition from your bank account if you wish. Please contact the Little Lions office for more information.
Little Lions Preschool Program
The Little Lions 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.
The Maple Valley Schools Little Lions Preschool programs incorporate:
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 Motor Monkeys - a fun gym class to promote gross motor development.
Little Lions Child Care
At Little Lions Child Care, children ages 6 weeks to 12 years old are provided with high quality, educationally based care. Low adult to child ratios and highly qualified staff, along with the use of a nationally recognized curriculum, The Creative Curriculum for Infants, Toddlers and Preschoolers, provide children with the highest standards in early education. School Age programs, including before and after school care, no school days and school vacation camps, focus on team building and character development. Our facility has multiple classroom spaces allowing for division of age groups to ensure developmentally appropriate activities for all children.
Hours of operation for Little Lions Child Care are Monday - Friday from 6:30 a.m. - 6:00 p.m.year round. For more information or to schedule a tour, contact: Jamie Richter, Director, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
