Kalamazoo Area Preschools Are Enrolling NOW for Fall


Kalamazoo Country Day School, the premiere independent school in SW Michigan is celebrating 35 years of educating preschool through eighth grade students. At the core of the KCDS preschool are warm and welcoming classrooms where the children feel valued and safe. The curriculum is intellectually challenging and presented through creative, small group activities. All of our preschool teachers have Early Childhood or Lower Elementary certification.

Beginning with our youngest students, we offer Spanish four times a week, Music three times, Physical Education twice, plus Library, Art and Computers once a week. We offer a three or a five day program, half or full day.

Please join us Tuesday and Wednesday, February 11th & 12th, between 9-11 am when we open our doors so you can see us in action, visit the classrooms and meet the teachers. Individual tours may be scheduled through the Admissions office.
