keep early education positive

Our Keep Early Education Positive (KEEP) program offers comprehensive support and consultation to childcare providers, teachers, and parents when a child ages 0-5 is facing any kind of difficulty in childcare or preschool. KEEP provides intervention and support so that children have a more successful experience in their early education.

Arbor Circle’s KEEP program was made possible because of the generosity of Kent County taxpayers and the voter-approved Ready by Five Early Childhood Millage.

Our Infant and Toddler Development Services allow parents to learn more about themselves and their children, discover new ways to build relationships with their infants, and receive guidance for a variety of behavioral concerns and parental issues. These issues may include depression, anxiety, or fears, and can be addressed through counseling, case management, and more.
