Family First Learning Center in Canton offers an academic preschool program unparalleled in southeast Michigan. What makes us different?
We offer an effective preschool curriculum that teaches children to read using phonics. This program, using materials from Abeka book and our own custom techniques and curriculum, is fun, interactive, developmentally appropriate, and proven. We have been honing and refining it to teach children to read since 2008, and have since added other essential academic skills to help your child excel in kindergarten and beyond.
Early reading gives your child an unmatched advantage in kindergarten. Early readers stay ahead academically of other students, have higher self-esteem, and higher attention spans. These advantages follow them throughout their academic careers.
Our program also allows for both child-directed and adult-directed activities. Your child will have daily opportunities to explore and learn on his own in addition to being guided by caring and attentive teachers.
