ABC Academy is proud to offer provide preschool and child care programs for children 2 1/2 weeks through 12 years of age at our three locations in the Jackson community and surrounding areas! (Plus we offer our Junior Counselor Program for teens!)
You’ll be glad to know we are NAEYC accredited!
Below is a brief summary of each program offered; please click on the link for more details on each specific childcare program.
Infant & Toddler Care:
ABC Academy recognizes that the Infant and Toddler Group is a diverse one, and that each child is different. We recognize and encourage these differences, while at the same time providing opportunities for the Infant/Toddler to enhance their development progress. Goals have to be constantly reassessed in terms of the current needs of the children in the classroom.
Preschool & Pre-Kindergarten:
Our preschool program cares for (potty trained) children ranging from 3 to young 4 years of age. The rooms are arranged into several interest centers to allow each child to freely choose from a variety of challenging and creative activities. There are large spaces for group activities as well as smaller areas for one-on-one interaction with the teacher.
Great Start Readiness Program:
ABC Academy has been selected by the Jackson County Intermediate School District as one of the Jackson area preschool programs eligible to provide the Great Start Readiness Preschool Program (GSRP). This is a free full day preschool program, operating from October 30 to June 8.
Children must be 4 years of age by November 1 to participate in this program. Families must also meet the eligibility guidelines established by the Michigan Department of Education.
Contact any of our centers to set up a meeting to determine if your family meets the eligibility guidelines. Additional information about the Great Start Readiness Program (GSRP) can also be found at www.michigan.gov.
Kindergarten & School-Age:
School age children attend ABC Academy before and after school, during school holidays, in-service days and in the summer. The children are involved in a variety of activities both indoors and outdoors. Quiet time, tutoring, reading or just relaxing after school is also an important part of youth care. Summers are adventure filled for the youth age children. Weekly outings to local attractions along with special visitors are activities that fill their day. Bus Transportation
Young Teens, 13 to 15 Years of Age:
Both teens and parents are excited about our Junior Counselor Program and feel that it meets the needs of both the parent (for their child to be safe and supervised) and the teen (to have some autonomy and important work to do).
“ABC Academy … a great place for your child
