Re: Huron Valley Schools Child Care

Keeping in mind that school based early childhood programs are a vital component in preparing children to learn. Huron Valley Recreation & Community Education offers several programs to expand a child's learning:

The Apollo Center collaboration includes:

• Year-round, full-day child care for infants to 5 year olds
• Fee-based preschool for 3 and 4 year old students
• Early intervention for student’s birth through 3 years of age
• Head Start and Title 1 preschool for 3 to 5 year olds
• School Readiness for 4 year old students
• Play and Learn (PAL) for student’s ages 3 to 5 years with special needs

The opportunity allows preschool teachers and para-professionals to collaborate and work side by side not, only with each other, but with other early childhood professionals such as district kindergarten teachers and the staff of Oakland Schools.

There are Therapists who specialize in speech and language, occupational therapy, and physical therapy. In addition, there are social workers for students who need additional support.

From visits by dentists, firefighters and the Huron Valley Council for the Arts to celebrating Dr. Seuss' birthday, it enriches students' school experiences by exposing them to activities outside the traditional classroom.

In addition to Apollo Center, the Early Childhood Department of Huron Valley Recreation and Community Education offers several other programs to expand a child's learning:

• 3 and 4 year old preschool classes at Kurtz Elementary in Milford
• 3 and 4 year old preschool classes at Brooks Elementary in White Lake
• Before and after school child care in all elementary buildings;
• Summer Experience day camp
• Summer Experience-The Outdoor Adventure held at Proud Lake State Recreation Area
