VLC is licensed and operates in accordance to the rules set by the state of Michigan.
We pride ourselves on our dedication to foster the development and respect of the whole child. This holistic approach allows for your children to get the maximum experience in all areas of development at their own rate. We believe that each child has the right to be heard at all times. We believe in supporting your children in learning to make choices and to solve problems.
Our safety components include, but are not limited to: proper barriers within the program, child safe storage of any non child friendly materials, monitoring and following physician’s action plans for allergies, and monitoring the children’s overall health. Children are never out of sight or sound of a responsible adult.
Embracing diversity is an important part of our program. Your children will be exposed with enthusiasm to all the classroom’s different cultures: holidays, languages, food and traditions. The program will be respectful to the families’ culture as well as religious practices. We hope that the parents would participate in educating both the teachers and the children of their traditions. Diversity will be proactively implemented even if all the children are one race or religion through the use of literature, age appropriate research, music, artifacts, and multi-cultural dolls.
Our program is a play based, teacher-assisted program. Your child is encouraged to follow his/her own interest while the teachers find ways to facilitate maximum development.
We welcome children from ages 6 weeks to 6th grade (before, after school care, snow days, school breaks). VLC’s teaching staff is not only qualified in accordance with the rules of licensing of the state of Michigan, but also receives continued education throughout the year in order to continue to improve.
For over 25 years, Creative Curriculum has offered one of the most powerful ways to improve child outcomes through effective teaching. This is the reason that we at the VLC use this forward-thinking, comprehensive, research-based and research-proven curriculum. This curriculum helps teachers to be their most effective, showcases their creativity, and respects their critical role in making learning exciting and relevant for every child.
Creative Curriculum covers all domains of development from birth to Kindergarten. It has a strong social emotional component for the younger years, that continues through preschool. The cognitive measures start from very early on. Gross and fine motor skills are well defined and tracked, allowing teachers and parents to encourage development in the best possible way.
