Who We Are

This program in partnership between the University of Michigan-Flint and Flint Community Schools is designed to bring exceptional early childhood education directly to Flint families. It brings the same teaching methods used at UM-Flint’s nationally accredited and top ranked on-campus preschool. Children are educated using the Reggio Emilia approach which engages their mind, creativity, and independence in a way that is ideal for lead-exposed children and used at some of the finest preschools worldwide.

Our Holmes classrooms: Ruscello classroom, 3 and 4 year olds (must be 3 years old by Sept. 1); Inizio classroom, 3 and 4 year olds (must be 3 years old by Sept. 1), and Bellissimo classroom, GSRP, 4 and 5 year olds (must be 4 years old by Sept. 1)
