Welcome to Little Glad Early Childhood Center

Little Glad Center Classrooms


The staff of Little Glad Early Childhood Center believes that all children learn best in a warm, inviting, and stimulating environment. Children are encouraged to grow and explore many different materials in their environment. We will promote learning through hands-on activities and real-life experiences.  We accept the challenge of providing activities to promote social, emotional, and academic growth to prepare your child for kindergarten.

Little Glad Early Childhood Center Mission Statement

We are committed to providing a program that maintains a safe and healthy environment, supports social-emotional development, and offers children opportunities for growth in all areas of development. This will be demonstrated through children’s kindergarten success and their ability to build and sustain healthy relationships. Our commitment will be demonstrated through measurable outcomes in:

  • Children’s exposure to a variety of experiences  
  • Children’s expression and management of emotions; 
  • Children learning pro-social classroom behaviors;
  • Children exhibiting self-confidence; 
  • Children's ability to establish positive and rewarding relationships with others.

Little Glad Early Childhood Vision Statement

Building a bond with families that provides a supportive, nurturing environment for each individual child. To support this vision, we participate in the Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP), Great Start to Readiness Program (GSRP) Child Care Aware scholarship program, and the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (CDC) Child Development and Care Reimbursement program.

Curriculum, Assessment, and Support

We are utilizing Creative Curriculum® Twos and Creative Curriculum® for Preschool. Creative Curriculum® shows teachers how to integrate learning in literacy, math, science, social studies, the arts, and technology throughout the day. It also gives the teacher a wide range of teaching strategies-- from child-initiated learning to teacher-directed approaches-- to best respond to children's learning styles, strengths, and interests. 

Partnering with Creative Curriculum®, anecdotal records for each child’s activities are recorded in Teaching Strategies Gold and then shared with parents at twice-yearly Parent/Teacher Conferences. 

The Fowlerville Community Schools Auxiliary Team consisting of Occupational /therapists, Physical Therapists, and Speech Therapists are located within our facility with access to all children attending our programs.
