Bloomin' Fox Hills Opportunities

  • PTO: The PTO at Fox Hills was established in 1986. The PTO exists to enhance your child's educational experience. All parents are encouraged to join and support, attend meetings and participate in our organization.
  • Visible Thinking: Visible Thinking, a teaching framework from Harvard University, provides students with a culture of thinking that fosters creativity, problem solving, critical thinking, and collaboration. At the core of Visible Thinking are thinking routines that provide students with strategies that extend and deepen student thinking and understanding.
  • Library: We have a stand alone library with over 900 children's books. The children visit our library once a week where they have an opportunity to check out a book and visit with our school librarian for a story. Additionally, there are listening centers and computers available for the children's use.
  • Science Center: Our Science Center teacher works closely with our preschool staff to integrate activities that relate to the studies the children are exploring in their classrooms. Additionally, we have 22 animals in our science center for children to interact with and observe. During our holiday and summer breaks children have opportunities to bring home our animals home for extended sleepovers. All programs visit our Science Center daily.
  • Gross Motor Classroom: We are fortunate to have an entire open space designated as our Gross Motor Classroom. This area is complete with a bike track, climbing equipment, hop scotch, foursquare and physical education equipment. All programs visit our Gross Motor Classroom daily.
  • Gym: In addition to our Gross Motor Classroom we have a school gym. The classrooms visit the gym once per week in place of their Gross Motor time. The gym is equipped with soft indoor climbing equipment, preschool hockey, lacrosse, badminton and basketball equipment and mini roller coasters. Our gym teacher manages the activities offered during gym time to vary the choices throughout the year.
  • Preschool Playgrounds: Our infant/toddler playground is enclosed with age-appropriate equipment for our youngest children. We also have a large preschool playground with age-appropriate play structures, including adaptive swings for our children with special needs.

Infant Program (Ages 6 weeks - 18 months)

Preschool Program (Ages 2.5 - 6 years)

As you enter our preschool classrooms you will notice the classroom's physical space is divided into interest areas. The interest areas are Art, Blocks, Dramatic Play, Discovery, Sand and Water, Toys and Games, Music and Movement, Library, Technology and Cooking. The interest areas contain open ended activities for the children to explore. These activities will support our six content areas which include science, social studies, literacy, math, the arts and technology. The skills your children will develop while participating in the interest areas are directly tied to the Michigan Early Childhood Standards.

Creative curriculum is a proven research based curriculum. This is a developmentally appropriate practice that matches the way children learn and develop. The teacher is the classroom facilitator. As the classroom facilitator the teacher guides, observes, and accesses your child's learning. We use the Creative Curriculum Study Starters to develop our lessons. Study Starters are models to help implement and investigate project based learning. Studies are one of the most effective ways for children to learn science and social studies content while developing skills in literacy, math, the arts, and technology. The children become totally engaged in topics and activities that interest them while challenging them to extend thinking to higher levels. Our IB and Visible Thinking initiatives support this creative curriculum approach.

The parent's role is essential in supporting their child's learning. Within the creative curriculum approach, there are many opportunities to involve families.
