We firmly believe in the fundamental value and dignity of all individuals and work to create an environment that is equitable and inclusive for all. At Foundations Preschool, diversity, equity, and inclusion has been at the core of who we are since 1934 and is reflected in our mission to ensure equitable access to high-quality education. At Foundations we:

  • Ensure all children, regardless of the circumstances of their life, have access to affordable high-quality education and care
  • Cultivate a welcoming and inclusive environment for all families

  • Ensure opportunities for children to participate in educational activities that reflect diverse families and backgrounds
  • Educate children to help them see and speak out against injustice
  • Support children with varying needs and abilities, and assist families with challenges
  • Strive to foster belonging and empowerment at work

We are the largest, nationally accredited non-public preschool/childcare center in Washtenaw County providing subsidized tuition for all enrolled children and year-round extended care. We strive to follow the NAEYC recommendations for advancing equity in Early Childhood Education.
