At Barnes Early Childhood Center we provide learning opportunities through both tuition-based preschool and early childhood special education services.
    The mission of Grosse Pointe Public Schools' Early Childhood Program is to provide educational opportunities for young children, while respecting and supporting the home and family.  We recognize each individual's need to love and to be loved, to trust and be trusted, and to learn in a warm environment filled with positive and realistic expectations.
    Our philosophy is based on the enhancement of the "total child".  A child is first and foremost a complete individual with strengths and weaknesses.  The multidisciplinary staff works together with family members toward the child's maximum potential in all areas and to facilitate educational opportunities both in school and at home.
    *If you have concerns regarding your child's development, please call the Barnes office @ 313-432-3800 to make a referral for Early On and/or Special Education Services.
