Dear Moms,

Please help me with my search for a preschool for my son this Fall. I have come across 50+ preschools. Although, I still feel as if I have not found the right one for us. I looked into Head Start, Great Start, World of Fours, ect. and we do not qualify. Here's what we're looking for in a preschool- Location: anywhere in Macomb County south of Hall Rd., Grosse Pointe area, or Oakland County south of Big Beaver and east of I-75.
Schedule: 2 days a week in afternoon
Tuition: no more than $140 a month
A few additional details: We would prefer the preschool to be Christian based or a Co-op. We're looking for a 1:8 ratio or better. Also, for it to be a strictly four year old class rather than 3-5 year olds. We would like the facility to be plentiful in size. You'd be suprised at how many 12' by 20' preschool class rooms we've toured. A program that offers a handful of fieldtrips would be great too! We would also hope that the teachers would have early childhood degrees.

I do not mean to come off as fussy at all. I just know what kind of preschool will work best for our child and lifestyle. I've spent a lot of time searching and am starting to get a bit frusterated. All the preschools that fit are criteria, seem to be too far away thus far. I figured referalls from other moms, would be my best bet at this point. Thanks In Advance! I'd greatly appreciate any suggestions!

What can I do next?

My son goes to Trinity Lutheran at Hall and Van Dyke. He's in the 3 yr old preschool. The tuition for 4 yr preschool is 127.00. 4yr olds, 3 yr olds, and 5 yr olds are all separate. My son will also be in the 4 yr old preschool next fall too! 4 yr preschool is 3 days a week mon, wed, fri. We love it there! They do have field trips to the cider mill, nature center, and a couple of others. The room is very large with climbing toys, a pretend area, lot's of play space. They have circle time, Jesus time, snack, gym, library, and a project. I believe they also have chapel twice a month. It's in an actual school setting, not a daycare setting, which I like. His teacher has been there for a very long time. She is VERY good! We are very pleased with it. In fact, I just became a member of the church there because we like it so much. We anticipate sending both of our children there through 8th grade, God willing. Good luck!

Hi J.,

I also live in Roseville. I teach the Parent-Toddler class at the Troy Co-op Preschool and my son will be attending the 3's class in the fall.

I think it's about 15 miles from Roseville, it usually takes me about 30 minutes to get there.

I guess I'm bias because I work there, but there is no other place I would send my child! I just love co-op's in general. It's so nice that you don't just drop your child off at the door without being allowed to go into the classroom. I also love the option to work in the classroom on a monthly basis and to participate in fieldtrips and holiday celebrations! It feels more like a family then a school.

Mrs. Teagan has been teaching at the school for 35 years and her daughter, Mrs. Rumel, has been there for 10 years. Please check out the website and go in for a visit!

I know there are also Co-op Preschools in St. Clair Shores & Grosse Pointe.

Check out St. Germaine's in St. Clair Shores. I believe it meets everything you are looking for. The have separate 3 and 4 preschool. They have a separate building for preschool, larger than a normal class room. They do 2 field trips (with parents). There is a main teacher and an assistant at all times and then another teacher who comes in off and on and they encourage parent involvement for certain activities. I went to an open house there recently and thought it was great and loved the teachers. I also had 3 families recommend it to me. They have a few camps in the summer that you could send your son to try it out also.
I also heard that Trinity Lutheran had a good program.

St. Peter's Lutheran in Eastpointe opened a brand new Early Childhood Center last fall. My daughter is currently enrolled and we couldn't be happier there. The staff is great as is the curriculum. It is Christ-centered with the kids having chapel once a week and Jesus time in their classrooms. There are also a couple field trips for the 4 year olds. They are definitely worth checking out if you haven't done so already.

I would highly recommend Redeemer Preschool on Jefferson between 12 & 13 Mile. I sent both of my girls there and they were prepped for Kindergarten and loved the teachers. The teachers were nurturing and made the class fun everyday. It is a Christian based program and I just couldn't say enough good things about it. They don't do fieldtrips but that didn't bother me. Also, the class ratio is a little larger than your looking for, but they do have an aide. Good luck in your search!
