Welcome to Academic Gardens!

We provide part-time or full-time care for 3 year-old, 4-year old, and 5-year old students. Our open-space classrooms and secure, shaded playground area allow us to foster independence within our students, while they learn to navigate rules, social skills, friendships, and literacy. 

Our mission is to provide a wonderfully enriching preschool experience that challenges and nurtures our young students. We seek to instill a life-long love of learning in everyone who attends Academic Gardens. 

We are located in southeast Michigan, downtown Plymouth, in a 100-year-old, ivy-covered carriage house.

We looked at several other preschools and after seeing the very low teacher-student ratios at Academic Gardens, we didn’t hesitate. We love the school and are thrilled at how well our daughter is doing. She is so proud when she learns something new and shares it with us. This is a wonderful school.– Kris E., Ann Arbor
Being a teacher in the public school system, I have an immense appreciation for a well put together, loving program that helps children develop properly. I must say we couldn’t be more pleased by the fine job Academic Gardens has done in truly making our child LOVE to learn. – Lisa B, Canton
The first day of school, our son cried his eyes out when we left him. I was worried that I was going to have a problem with him getting adjusted. When I went back to pick him up after school, he didn’t want to leave. He just LOVED the school. We never had a problem after that first day. It was the perfect start for him. – Dave A., Westland
