Programs that Foster Learning

Kindergarten Builds Confidence

image description

Our all-day and half-day kindergarten has a proven history (30 years) of academic excellence. No one knows your child better than you do. If you feel that he or she is ready for part- time kindergarten you can enroll your child in that program. If you feel that he or she is ready for all-day kindergarten, enroll early. We limit our class size to 12. Either way you’ll be pleased with how much your child learns.

Your child will excel with a strong emphasis in reading, math and science. Our kindergarten strengthens problem solving skills, critical thinking and creativity.

Students receive special one-on-one reading instruction from Ms. Richele, our kindergarten teacher. She has been a teacher at DCA for over 15 years and was nominated as one of Metro Parent’s Top Teachers in SE Michigan. Our accelerated program and small class size help children become fluent readers and exceptionally well prepared to enter elementary school. We foster socialization and teamwork through our math, science and social studies programs.

Every year our Kindergarten class looks forward to the delivery of the caterpillars. Ms. Loretta places them carefully into our special butterfly house where we can observe and learn about the different stages of how a caterpillar becomes a butterfly. When it’s time, the entire school watches in amazement as our beautiful butterflies are set free and fly away to their new homes.
