Classes are offered for three and four year old children, in both morning and afternoon sessions. Please note that if there are not enough children enrolled, we cannot offer an afternoon class. CHUP follows the Dearborn schools calendar, and in most cases, if the Dearborn schools are closed (snow days, holidays, etc.), CHUP is closed as well. Since we have a lot of families commuting from out of town, we do have our own snow policy and will sometimes close when Dearborn Public school is not.
Children have access to three rooms of purposeful play, all geared to encourage problem-solving through imaginative play and creation.
The Quiet Room
Stocked with manipulatives, games, puzzles, Legos, a variety of small toys, fish tank and train table, the Quiet Room invites children to narrate, build, analyze solutions and cooperate with others.
The Active Room
This space provides preschoolers a chance to move and interact with each other while trying out a variety of real world scenarios by providing dress-up clothes, large blocks, city center with a store, play house and climber with a slide.
The Creative Room
Each day children are invited to participate in a teacher directed craft and have freedom to participate in self-directed exploration of a sand table, paints, chalkboard and play dough table. However your child best expresses his or her creativity, they will find ample opportunity to grow in their self expression and small motor skills in the Creative Room.
