Michigan Tech Preschool teaches through play-based learning. Activities are largely child-initiated which encourages selfmotivation. This helps them to develop decision-making and problem-solving skills. Academics are taught by weaving literacy, math, and science into all areas of the classroom. Teachers enhance academic skills through theme-based activities that are incorporated throughout the classroom. Circle-time is an important time of the day when the children come together for stories, music, and other activities that are teacher-directed.
Music is an important part of the daily routine at Michigan Tech Preschool. Children sing daily as a group and perform a music program for parents in December. In the spring, the preschool holds an art show to highlight the children's art created throughout the semester.
Classes run for two semesters. At full enrollment, two sessions are held each day. While every effort is made to accommodate requested schedules, Michigan Tech Preschool reserves the right to cancel sessions or reassign students based on estimated enrollment.
