2023 Detroit Mom-Approved Guide to Preschools and Daycares

Detroit Mom partnered with the amazing people at Blooming Brains Academy and Berkley Building Blocks to bring you this post. All opinions are our own.

Choosing a preschool or daycare, especially for the first time, can be a difficult decision. Many of us at Detroit Mom have been there before, some of us choosing preschools and daycares multiple times. Making sure your kids are happy and healthy wherever they attend preschool is super important. As moms, we know exactly where you’re coming from!

Our wonderful readers ask us for preschool recommendations on a daily basis, especially during enrollment season. We’re excited to share some of the best schools our area has to offer. Our aim is to help you and your growing families make the best and most informed preschool decision possible for your children.

We are thrilled to provide this local resource, brought to you by our wonderful local sponsors + the Detroit Mom team!
