Thank you for taking the time to learn about Glacier Way West Side Cooperative
Preschool! We have been providing Ann Arbor families with a quality,
affordable preschool education for more than 40 years. Located on the west
side of town,
on S. Seventh Street near Pauline, we welcome you to visit our school. Please read our Open House schedule below.
Ann Arbor has recently made the switch to a full-day Kindergarten, a change
that makes a preschool education even more valuable for many children.
Glacier Way Preschool offers classes twice per week for three-year-olds and
three times per week for four-year-olds. During these classes, our skilled
and creative teacher, Renee Hult, with support from co-op parents, leads
children in structured and free play activities, art projects, dramatic
Glacier Way also offers two unique additional programs. For children who
will enter Kindergarten during the next school year, we offer an Enrichment
program two afternoons per week, twice per month. These sessions include
games and projects that help students practice fine-motor skills,
pre-reading, counting, and other activities necessary for Kindergarten
In addition, once per month, students in both classes are invited to
participate in the All About Science program. Our teacher, Renee Hult,
created this hands-on preschool science program that uses investigation of
scientific concepts (sound, friction, dinosaurs, water, light) to encourage
higher thinking skills.

Auction with donations and/or purchases! Please support

Our monthly after-school science program,
All About Science (AAS)
has been a huge success with all the children who have participated. Developed
by our teacher, Renee Hult, AAS introduces scientific skills to young children.
By encouraging scientific thinking in the early years, AAS promotes higher
thinking to prepare children for more advanced learning later in life.
Children who stay for AAS should bring their lunch from home and be prepared
for a fun and educational hour after the regular preschool morning.

All About Science page.
