Eastern Upper Peninsula Early Childhood Programs & Services

A Joint Effort of the Great Start Collaborative

Engadine Great Start Readiness Program is committed to providing a nurturing, secure, educational setting for young children and their families. With a safe, developmentally appropriate, but challenging environment, children learn, explore, and make age appropriate choices as they experience their world and its challenges. Our play-based programs develop each child's unique potential, recognizing individuality as the basis for all growth measurements. The process enhances physical, communication, emotional, social, creative, and intellectual growth. Staff and families continually work together to help young children achieve growth. We believe that long-lasting partnerships between school, family, and community are essential components of children’s success. Through the High/Scope curriculum staff, children, and families partner with the community, learn to value diversity and to foster individuality, self-confidence, love of learning, responsibility, positive attitude, and respect for themselves and others.
