Preschool is a time to run, jump, and play…to take things apart and put them back together…to sing and dance…to listen to stories and to share with each other. The Forest Hills Public Schools’ preschools provide these opportunities and much more in a warm, nurturing environment where children can grow socially, emotionally, physically, and intellectually. FHPS offers many options for preschoolers. We have both traditional and Spanish immersion tuition-based preschool programs. Our two traditional preschool programs for 4-year-olds are located at Ada Elementary School and Knapp Forest Elementary School. The Spanish immersion preschool is housed at Ada Vista Elementary School. These preschools are licensed by the State of Michigan and follow the FHPS district calendar. For more information, please visit our child care and preschool page, or call the child care services office, 616-493-8787.
There also is another preschool option for qualifying families. The Great Start Readiness Program, a 4-year-old preschool offered through the Kent Intermediate School District, is a free preschool for qualifying families. Great Start Readiness preschools are located at Ada Elementary School and Collins Elementary School. For information about Great Start Readiness, please call the ISD, at 616-447-2409.
