Daycroft's Journey Through the Levels
Daycroft's Journey Through the Levels is scheduled for tonight, Thursday, February 7th from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. in the Zeeb Campus gymnasium.  Come explore the continuum of educational experiences Daycroft has to offer and hear from past students and parents about their experience with the Daycroft Difference.

Following the presentation, please feel free to let one of our student ambassadors take you on a tour of the school or visit the various classrooms where our teachers and staff will be available to answer any questions.  I will also be available in the library to answer questions about the Continuous Enrollment Contract.

Childcare will be provided for our families in the multi-purpose room during the event.  Please call Laura Hogan at the Zeeb Campus Office at 734.662.3335 to reserve your spot.

Looking forward to seeing you there.

The Third Plane of Development: New Identity 
The period of adolescence (ages twelve to eighteen) marks the end of childhood. In early adolescence (ages 12 to 15), young adults are exploring and coming to terms with integrating different aspects of themselves. This is a period of rapid growth and early adolescents need enough food and sleep, as well as time to process and reorient. All Montessori classrooms nourish the whole child - academic, emotional, social - but the Adolescent Experience adds personal reflection and other exercises to particularly support the individuals and their growth.

New Enrichment Classes at Zeeb
The Polar Vortex has finally moved on and our students are having fun after school and learning too!  New classes added to the first semester favorites include piano lessons with Ezra, Open Studio Art, Beginner Tap, Drum Ensemble, Budding Chefs and Robotics:  Pro-Bots & More Enrichment classes are a special way to fill time while your child is waiting for you to finish working. Download the class schedule and descriptions here or email with questions!
