Have you ever read a book and imagined yourself as one of the characters? We will do just that when you dress like your favorite character and share the book with everyone. We will have to work together to write the best bed time story ever to soothe a cranky publisher, Dr. Blotch, back to bed.

Before and After School Program (Grades K-5)

We offer a before and after school program for children in grades Kindergarten through 5th Grade, who are currently enrolled in Estabrook Elementary School, Ypsilanti International Elementary School, Perry Early Learning Center, Carpenter Elementary School (Ann Arbor), and Ann Arbor Open School. Care is also offered during Ypsilanti Community School and Ann Arbor Public School days off, as well as Summer Camp for all area students, as space allows.

Little Angels school age program is an adventure of exploration, discovery, and imagination. Our summer camp experience offers a balance of learning activities, field trips, water play, special guests, and a healthy amount of play time, allowing students time to explore nature and enjoy the outdoors. As we all remember from childhood, camp is an important time to build meaningful friendships and createl memories that last a lifetime. 

Using the Reggio Emilia philosophy, we are developing a unique, project-based approach, promoting the deveopment of the whole child. Our project-based curriculum will develop with the interests of the children and is designed to be impactful and age appropriate for each grade level. It fosters a love of learning that prepares children for a successful school experience. Outdoor exploration will be a key part of our program. Children will be given ample time to be outside to eat, study, and socialize.

Some examples of project work could include an artist study, the management of the garden, or the prooduction of a talent show or play. The choice of the project work is based on the interests of the children. Cooperative projects can take place, as well as individual projects. The role of the teacher is to encourage, support, and provide resurces (experts, research, a "sounding board") for the children.

Ypsilanti Public Schools will bus children between Little Angels and Estabrook, Ypsilanti International, and Perry Elementary Schools. Little Angels will bus children between our facility and Carpenter Elementary School. Ann Arbor Open Students can bus to Carpenter and be picked up, as well.

Breakfast will be provided for before care and snack will be provided for after care. All meals and snacks will be provided for full days.

Please call us at (734) 998-0233 for accurate pricing for our school aged program.

Preschool Programs

Preschool Programs

The Preschool Program is for children ages 31 months to 5 years old. The children are currently separated into 4 classrooms based on age and development.
 
The Preschool Program is exactly what it sounds like. We’re getting them ready to go to a “real” big-kid school! We offer varied experiences using an emergent curriculum to give your child a well-rounded education and experience. There are clearly defined "centers".  The children are taught to put toys away in the correct place before they get more out.  They enjoy many opportunities to practice their language skills, learn how to cut, and hold a pencil.
 
Children become interested in potty training at this age, and most already are!  We encourage them, along with you, to begin potty training when they are ready.  We do not push potty training but with consistency on both the parent and teacher's part your child will be successful. 
 
Your child is also forming their personality so we also teach them about integrity, honesty, friendship and appreciation of diversity. The skills they develop will give them more confidence to enter Kindergarten and succeed. We target the expected outcomes of Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti Public School Kindergarteners and make sure each and every one of our graduates are prepared for kindergarten and beyond.  We prepare our children to be ready academically, socially, and emotionally, for their first day of school.
 

Toddler Program

Toddler Program

Our Toddler Program is for children ages 18 months to 30 months. The children are separated into 3 classrooms based on age and development.
 
As with our Infant Program, our Toddler Program teachers have specialized training in infant and toddler care and development.  Like the infant program, you will receive a Daily Report.  Prior to advancing from the Infant Program, we provide the opportunity for your child to "visit" the Young Toddler Room. Whenever possible, the Infant teacher goes with them to help ease the transition.
 
Children begin to learn about sharing, walking in a line, taking turns and circle time. Through our emergent curriculum, they increase their socialization skills!
 

Infant Program

Infant Program

The Infant Program is for children from about 6 weeks to about 18 months old. The children may be separated into three or more classrooms, based on age and development.  We recognize that every child is unique and has their personal needs and routines.  We work with you to support and develop your child's daily routines.  We provide a "Daily Report Card" to provide feedback regarding your baby's growth and development.  This provides specific details on the times your child is fed and when, and whom, changed their diaper.  The "Daily Report Card" helps everyone communicate for your child's benefit.  
 
At pick up, we make time for a detailed conversation about your child's day.  Our Infant teachers have education and experience specifically for this age group, including specialized training in infant care and development.  Our teachers not only feed and diaper your babies, but they LOVE them, and it shows!
