Michigan Tech Preschool is a non-profit, cooperative preschool serving children ages 3-5 and is a fully-licensed preschool. As the oldest preschool in the Copper Country area, Michigan Tech Preschool is proud of its history of excellence in offering quality, affordable early childhood education.
The teachers meet all state certification requirements for early-childhood educators. Michigan Tech Preschool is open to all interested families and non-English speaking children are welcome.
Michigan Tech Preschool provides a safe, nurturing environment that encourages the development of a positive self-image and a love of learning. Our curriculum prepares them for future school experiences by fostering social, emotional, cognitive, and physical growth.
The classroom includes a dress-up play area, toy area, art area, blocks, a climber, and other activity areas. Painting and play dough are offered to the children regularly. The students play on an outdoor playground throughout the entire school year.
As a cooperative preschool, Michigan Tech Preschool relies upon its member parents’ support for its continued success. An important key to a good preschool is interested parents/guardians who care about what happens in school and are willing to share their ideas, talents, and time to make the school better.
