Our Mission


Waterford Township’s Early Childhood - Early Education program is designed to create an equitable, accessible, student-centered program that celebrates each child’s uniqueness. We believe collaboration between home, school, and community is imperative in order to fully achieve positive relationships and outcomes on behalf of our youngest learners. Through a vertically-aligned, developmentally-appropriate curriculum, we are committed to encouraging play-based practices that offer choice and inquiry, while remaining rigorous and challenging. We further believe it is critical to draw upon all stakeholders, to provide cohesive supports that advocate for, and nurture the whole child, while creating access and opportunities for every student to grow and reach his or her full potential.
