School Countdown Begins!
The Bay City Public School District wants every child to have a great academic beginning. We know that every child develops at their own pace. Our District offers the following Early Childhood Programs to support your child:
Great Start Readiness Program
Our Bay-Arenac Preschool Partnership Programs focus on Kindergarten Readiness skills using the MDE Early Childhood Standards of Quality for PreKindergarten.
Prepares children who need more time to develop socially, emotionally, physically, and /or academically for the expectations of a traditional Kindergarten classroom.
Children who enter Kindergarten are “school ready.” A traditional curriculum based on the MDE Common Core Standards is followed.
Children are accelerated beyond the MDE Common Core Standards in Math and English Language Arts utilizing First Grade materials.
