welcome to Humble Beginnings day care & preschool

Humble Beginnings is a licensed child care facility. It is our goal to provide a safe, healthy, learning environment for your child.

We give children an opportunity to explore and discover in many different ways, but with an emphasis in art, music, science, math readiness and language. We use monthly themes that are chosen to promote learning in all areas of a child's development. This takes place in a loving, fun and happy atmosphere.

Humble Beginnings operates year around offering full and half day child care programs that services children ages 6 weeks to 5 years. Summer programs are also available for older students during the months of June, July and August.

Children learn best in an environment that is set up for them. They benefit both from engaging in self-initated, spontaneous play and from teacher-planned and structured activities, projects, and experiences.

Management and staff at Humble Beginnings day care facility are knowledgeable about the childcare industry and childcare development. Owner, Mrs. La'Kesha Ford has an Associates Degree in Child Development and over 15 years of experience working with children. The day care is a stable environment for its children with staff all having over 10 years combined work experience in the industry.

Organizational History

The inspiration to open a day care facility came after the birth of my youngest son. The day care was registered by the State of Michigan in 2001, as a family home childcare with a capacity of 6 children. In 2011, the demand for quality childcare grew and Humble Beginnings became a licensed childcare center with capacity of 30 children.

Between birth and 5 years, each human being exhibits the most learning power of his/her life and it is our objective to take advantage of this dynamic stage in a child's life. We provide opportunities for intellectual, social, physical, emotional, spiritual and aesthetic development.
