Other Activities

In addition to the daily routine, children will participate in some special projects and activities. This may include things like a visit from the Northville Fire Department or a dental hygienist.  Preschoolers also enjoy dress up days and a day set aside to bring in their bikes.

Parents receive a calendar describing the activities their child will participate in each month.  This allows parents to interact with their child in a more specific way about his/her day at preschool.

Preschoolers and their parents are invited to participate in a few field trips including a local apple orchard and a gymnastics center.

Preschool Dad’s Night is another highlight of the 3-year old program.
