We are proud to announce our new curriculum called "Lil' Building Blocks." This is a literacy-based program which focuses on our philosophy that we nurture and "build" the whole child. Curriculum activities are planned with emphasis on all areas of development: social, emotional, physical, cognitive and language, which all are the basis of literacy. We are completely gearing our program to prepare for your child's entry into the Clarkston Community School District.

We know the importance of literacy experiences at a very young age to foster reading, writing and speaking skills in the future. In fact, we feel that an environment rich with reading, singing and conversation needs to begin as early as in our infant rooms.

Children of all ages will be surrounded with opportunities to read, write, hear and see the written word and communicate as much as possible. We also

introduce Spanish and Sign Languages to all ages to strengthen

their communication skills.
