HI J.!

Try Great Parents/Great Start in Walled Lake School District.

Rochester Hills Community Schools offers a parent/toddler class that is excellent in getting a 2 year old ready for preschool. I would check the school districts in your area to see if something similar is available. I am pretty sure Walled Lake Schools offers something if West Bloomfield does not.

My 2 1/2 year old is currently enrolled in a parent/tot class at Lollipop Cooperative Preschool in Walled Lake. We have parents from West Bloomfield so it is convenient to your town.

The class is on Thursday mornings from 9:30-11. The day starts with free play, with choices of manipulatives (play doh, puzzles, lacing, hammering, sorting, etc), art projects, paint room, dramatic play room, vehicles, blocks, sand table, and more. Then we have group snack. Then we go to the rug for stories, songs, finger plays, rhythm & movement, etc.

It's a lot of fun for the kids (and the moms!). My 5 year old attended last year in the 4 year old class. It's a very affordable program. Monthly tuition is about $70.

There is an Open House on April 1, from 6-7:30pm. Please check out the website for further info on the school and the programs:

Hello J.:
Parent/Tot programs are a wonderful start for those early years. My daughter currently attends a fabulous preschool that offers excellent Parent/Tot programs that have the parent present during the whole time or part of the time as a way for the child to ease into a pre-school experience. The programs are amazingly effective for child and parent. And, for those children that transition very early, they have 2 or 3 half day programs as well. From what I understand, they also are piloting a new program in the Fall that has a gradual decrease of the parent's presence. I believe they will also be introducing and making available a child development specialist as a resource for parents as a part of these programs.

If interested, you can learn more about Echo Park at or ###-###-####. It is a private, non-profit preschool located on 12 Mile just east of Middlebelt in Farmington Hills. It has a fabulous reputation in Oakland County and has existed for over 45 years! A rich history yet amazingly current in how to provide most effective start in the early years. Families from many surrounding communities take their small ones there -- including many from West Bloomfield. I'd especially encourage you to visit the school. Hope this is helpful.
