Why We’re Here

Educare Flint and its sister school, Cummings Great Expectations, employ a two-generation approach to learning and development and serve 400+ Flint children and their families. Both centers offer full-day, full-year comprehensive programs that include health, nutrition, family support services and more – all centered around the Educare Network’s emphasis on data, professional development, high-quality teaching and family engagement.

Children, parents, staff and the extended community are the fabric of Educare Flint. Together, we are creating early learning environments where all children can learn, grow and be supported in becoming their very best selves.
