About Us

The Clarkston Community Schools Early Childhood center provides several programs for Clarkston families! We offer a variety of preschool programs for children ages 2-4 and an early intervention program for children birth-3. We also provide before and after school childcare at all seven of Clarkston Schools elementary buildings. Regardless of the program, our goal is to provide a safe, caring and nurturing environment that will help our children develop a sense of community and trust and a love of learning!
