The Dearborn Early Learning Center provides a family-like community beginning with their parent-participated "Baby & Me" classes through the preschool and up to the kindergarten. They have a strong teacher-to-student ratio, with 4-6 teachers in the classroom at any given time. They individualize academics to meet your childs level while incorporating play-based learning. Very happy I found this hidden gem!
My son has been attending the Dearborn Early Leaning Center for three years. The first year was a one hour a week my baby and me class. For the last two years he has attended preschool. The teachers are wonderful, the curriculum is wonderful, the environment is warm and caring. I would recommend this school even though it is very expensive now.
As a parent of a once extremely shy child and as an educator myself, I could not have found a better early learning center than this one. I did extreme research on Montessori's, and actually visited a few, and also a few other private pre-schools in the community, and no other school was as welcoming and warm than the Dearborn Early Learning Center. When I started my son, he was only 3, and would not talk in school. I was losing sleep thinking something was wrong with him, but they were so patient, did not pressure him, and made him so comfortable with his atmosphere that they did not let that get in the way of his preschool experience. With time and patience and a lot of one on one time with the teachers, by the end of the year he was reading! I was amazed at how these teachers did not allow his shyness and quietness get in the way of his education. I am so proud to say my son attends this school and now he is louder than ever and I have them to thank! I can honestly say you will not find a better preschool program out there. If you want a head start for your child, this is the place for them!
Love this school! Lots of fun and very educational. In just one year my son learned how to read. The teachers are wonderful and have lots of one on one time with each child. No pressure to excel- each child learns at their own pace. Great field trips and parent involvement is encouraged. Couldnt have picked a better preschool.
