Last month, a state-of-the-art early childhood education center opened its doors on the grounds of Durant-Tuuri-Mott Elementary.
The facility, called Educare Flint, provides free education for children ages two months to five years old and ensures that students and their families receive all the support needed to grow up safe, healthy and eager to learn.
Here’s what you need to know about the new school:
Educare Flint was made possible by partnerships between Flint Community Schools and the Community Foundation of Greater Flint, along with $11 million in grants from the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation to support the construction of the center. The state of Michigan is also playing a key role by providing funds for part of the school’s operations to support free, early childhood education.
