Tours, Admissions, and Enrollment

Getting Started

Enrollment inquiries to Allen Creek can be started by a phone call (734-994-3382) or email (inquires@allencreek.org). You can also fill out our online inquiry form.

One of our staff will contact you to answer your questions, provide information about our programs, and set up a visit for the parent(s) or guardian(s) at the school.

Generally, we enroll students prior to the fall for the school year. Children can also be enrolled throughout the school year if places are available. However, permission to contact current teachers, schools, or centers may be requested.

If you are looking at preschools in general, please feel free to use our list of questions to ask when choosing a preschool:

  • How will this school help my child and my family transition into a preschool setting?
  • How do you help children when they are missing their parents?
  • How does this school create a sense of community for families?
  • How does this school involve parents in their child’s preschool experience?
  • How do you select your teachers?
  • What is your approach to balancing academics, social skill development, and emotional growth?
  • Does the school require my child to be potty trained? How will you work with us to support this goal?
  • What is the class size and the reasoning behind it? How many students per teacher?
  • How is your preschool day structured for the children? How are children prepared for changes in routine?
  • Who will be involved in my child’s day at school?
  • Are creative arts such as music, visual arts, and movement incorporated into the program?
  • Will my child interact with the same core group of children each day to build community and trust?
  • Does your program have connected or alternating days, and why?
  • How do you deal with conflicts between children?
  • Will this school offer counseling and support to meet my family’s changing needs throughout the school year?
  • How are birthdays celebrated?
  • Are holidays celebrated at this school?
  • How do you help children understand difference between children, culturally or otherwise?

Visit Us

We like to afford an opportunity for parents to have a more extended conversation with us about what you are looking for in a school for your children and you. During this visit, we can respond individually to your questions and think with you about the fit between your goals and our program offerings.

Alternatively, we can schedule a visit for you to bring your child to our school outside of class time to meet an administrative team member. This allows you to see your child respond to our setting and staff, and allows us to meet your child.

To schedule a visit, please send an email to inquiries@allencreek.org or call (734) 994-3382.

Registration

Registration and financial aid forms are available in hard copy at the school, via email, or by downloading the forms below. Once a child is registered, an Enrollment Packet will be mailed to families and must be completed before the first day of attendance.

Wait List

The classes at Allen Creek are often full, and we maintain a waiting list for those classes. In the event that a family withdraws during the year, we will offer the available space to the next family on the waiting list for that class.

To join our Wait List, please send an email to inquiries@allencreek.org or call (734) 994-3382 and we will be sure to add you.
