Early Childhood Wrap-Around Services

The mission of Flint Community Schools Early Childhood program is to address the whole child. One way we accomplish this is by providing families with access to extended early childhood services offered by community partners of the city of Flint, serving children from birth through age three.

Cradle School

Cradle School is a nurturing haven for children aged four and younger and their families. Our approach revolves around fostering comprehensive readiness, aligning with the five crucial aspects defined by the state: physical and motor development, social and emotional development, approaches to learning, language development, and cognitive development.

In recognizing the significance of early childhood development, we acknowledge that the period between birth and kindergarten is a critical phase for a child's overall growth. Cradle School addresses the pressing issues facing early care and education in the United States, aiming to provide a supportive and enriching environment where each child can flourish.

As advocates for the well-being and preparedness of our youngest learners, Cradle School stands as a beacon when early care and education are recognized as essential components of a child's developmental journey. We are dedicated to creating a foundation that nurtures academic readiness and the social, emotional, and physical aspects crucial for a child's lifelong success.
