Enrollment is open for Ishpeming preschool program

ISHPEMING — The Ishpeming School District is now offering a preschool program, and enrollment is now open. This is the first year for the Hema–Tyke preschool program, which will feature a small classroom size to maximize individual attention, and it will be held in Birchview Elementary.

The program offers half–day or full–day options for 3 and 4 year olds to start to learn the skills that will be needed as they enter into elementary school.

“In the preschool program they’ll learn a lot of routines, learn how to cooperate and work with other kids, walk in line,” said Carrie Meyer, Superintendent for Ishpeming Public Schools. “But they’ll also be taught some small projects, some letters and numbers within the preschool program. It’ll be a typical curriculum that you see in most preschools preparing them to walk into kindergarten with some skills.”

The school district is also accepting applications for teachers for the program at this time.

“We have a couple in and we’re looking forward to having a few more applications come in,” said Meyer. “So we can have some quality interviews and hire the best fit for our district.”
