From Our Supervisor

Hello Preschool Families!

Welcome to Hazel Park Schools and Webster Early Childhood Center for the 2022/2023 school year! We hope you had a wonderful summer and are now ready for a year of awesome learning!

The Hazel Park Schools preschool program has been awarded one of the highest honors in early childhood education and that is our 5-Star Great Start to Quality status. We have reached the highest expectations for the Great Start Readiness Program to receive this status. We will maintain this status, assuring you that your child is a part of an amazing learning family. 

We have several programs at Webster Early Childhood Center:

     * Our Preschool Academy is for children 3 and 4 years of age. It is tuition-based. However, we do accept DHS for that program.

     * We also have our Great Start to Readiness Program (GSRP) which is a free preschool program for children that are 4 years old. 

     * Early On is a program for children that are birth to 3 years old with health conditions or a developmental delay

     * Early Childhood Special Education is a half-day program for students that are 3 and 4 years old that qualify for special services.

Our teachers are well qualified, with wonderful backgrounds and experience that shows in their nurturing relationships with children every day. Our classroom materials and resources are well aligned with the curriculum and allow our team to gear instruction where children show an interest and desire to learn.  The best kind of learning is student-led and guided with questioning that allows the child to own their own learning. It is beautiful to watch this very special time in your child’s life.

You are welcome to call our preschool any time! We are happy to meet you in person for a tour, zoom meeting, or phone call! Please call 248-658-5501 to set a date and time!

With Students in Mind,
