About Preschool at West Michigan Academy of Environmental Science

Come and explore our diverse ecosystems! Our preschool program is nature-based with focus on developing the foundation of early childhood academic skills. We encourage discovery, learning outside and exploring using all of our senses. From forests to prairies and ponds to meadows, our campus puts learning at our students’ fingertips.

At WMAES, we do more than tell our students to recycle - we educate them about the impact they have on their environment. Students plant and grow their own food while caring for it as it grows. Our gardens are located just steps outside of our brand-new early childhood center that opened in the fall of 2018.

Our program is tuition-based but will accept the State of Michigan child care reimbursement. Students need to be 4-years-old to attend.
