Knowing that a solid foundation is key to academic success in school and beyond, Saugatuck Public Schools is dedicated to excellence in our early childhood programs. Our programs are uniquely designed to nurture and guide the the early learner.
ECC staff members believe in providing a safe and caring learning environment for students. The philosophy behind the program is that young children learn while doing. Meaningful play and interaction are a big part of the total program. Staff members also believe learning is an active, exciting process that involves the whole child and is balanced among all areas of child development including social, emotional, physical, and cognitive growth.
The preschool curriculums are theme and literature based. While exploring themes and patterns, students acquire readiness skills in all content areas. Daily lesson plan goals, schedule, activities, toys, materials, and physical set-up of the classroom space are designed to help accomplish these goals.
