Early Childhood & Preschools


The early years of a child's life are very important to their success in school and life. Parents are also their child’s first and most important teacher.  At Wayland Union Schools, we want to partner with you to support your parenting efforts, starting at birth! 

Welcoming Schools will help parents with children age birth to five years old prepare for school success. There are many resources, ideas and activities within this website to assist you in your parenting efforts. 

If you would like a home visit from our Family Coach or have a concern about your child's development, please call 269-792-9153 or email Laurie Zywiczynski, lauriez@waylandunion.org

For more information on our preschool and kindergarten programs, see the links to the right.

All families in the Wayland Union School district with children ages 0-5 are encouraged to enroll their children with Welcoming Schools.  Please call 269-792- 9153 to receive a Lil' Wildcat Welcome Kit. 

These early childhood materials were developed under a grant awarded by the Michigan Department of Education.
