• West Bloomfield Community Education

    Welcome to West Bloomfield School District’s
    Community Education Department! 


    Our mission is to 
    Support, Supplement, and Complement our K-12 program, while providing educational services to our community at-large.  We do this through our 5 main components:

     

    • Early Childhood & School-Age Child Care

      • We offer a full range of early childhood programs which includes Stepping Stones, a full-day for three year olds, Junior Kindergarten, a full-day for four years olds and Traditional Preschool, a half-day program for three and four year old children.

      • We were one of the first school districts in Oakland County to offer the Great Start Readiness Program (GSRP), a state-funded full-day Preschool program for four year olds which provides tuition to families who qualify based on socio-economic factors.

      • We are widely recognized as having one of the best early childhood programs in Oakland County using the HighScope curriculum endorsed by Oakland Schools.

    • Enrichment and Recreation, including Summer Camps & Aquatics

      • Our enrichment and recreation program offers classes and activities after school, on Saturdays, and during school breaks.

      • All classes are designed to support and complement the K-12 program.

      • Summer programs include camps, such as Math and Reading Workshop, Summer Scholars, Junior Engineering, and Theater.

      • Summer day camps provide a full day of activities with both academic and enrichment content.

    • Adult Education & English as a Second Language

      • We consistently meet and exceed state standards in our Adult Education/ESL program and have one of the highest enrollments in Oakland County.

    • Academic Summer School

      • A program for credit recovery and grade improvement, we consistently see over 200 high school students earn credit each summer and experience academic success.

    • Facility Rental

      • School district facilities are available on a rental basis to individuals, groups, and religious and community organizations; generating revenue for the district and bringing people into our buildings.

     

    Community Education is a self-sustaining department that is funded through:

    • Tuition & fees

    • State & federal grants for our ESL program

    • Early Childhood grants for low-income families

    • Revenue generated from the rental of school facilities

       

    Profits generated from our activities flow back into the General Fund of the School District, thereby further enhancing WBSD’s educational programs.

     

    We are proud of being distinguished as the 2013 “District of the Year” by the Oakland County Community and Adult Educators for our outstanding community education programs and services.

     

    We provide activities and services for tots to seniors.  Our varied and exemplary programs promote life-long learning as a means to success and fulfillment.
