Online Options for Fall: Our recent parent survey showed that many of our parents may be considering virtual classes for their students for fall, whether remote learning is required or not. For many years, DCS has offered a completely online program for students from Kindergarten through 12th grade. The courses are full online courses and are designed to be online instruction. More information is available using this link.
If you are interested in learning more about the program, please respond to a brief survey. If you are not interested in learning more, please do not fill out the survey. Filling out this form does not enroll your child in online learning next fall. This information will be used as a gauge for internal planning purposes by the district leadership team. Your participation will help greatly as we plan for next year and develop a variety of options for our families.

Our Mission Statement:
Together with parents, we provide a safe, nurturing environment that encourages independence and growth through active learning.
In September 2014, Dexter Preschool moved to its present location and expanded our programs due to the Jenkins' family generous donation of the Generations Together facility. We offer full-day care for infants through preschool, and half-day preschool programs for 3-5 year olds. Our care ratios adhere to State of Michigan licensing requirements. We follow the HighScope Curriculum.
- Older Infants
- Preschool 3
- Preschool 4
- Half Day Preschool
We offer several half-day preschool program options. These run from September through May. Please see the items below for detailed information about enrolling your child at Jenkins Early Childhood Learning Center.
We enroll children in our year-round program on a rolling basis as space allows. Currently enrolled families and district employees receive first priority for available spots. We maintain a waiting list for interested families. Registration for Half-Day and Full-Day programs opens March 2, 2020 for currently enrolled families, March 9, 2020 for DCS staff, and March 16 for the general public.
