Universal Preschool Survey

Have a preschool aged child?
Michigan is launching a Universal Preschool Program to ensure that all children in Michigan, regardless of their socio-economic background, have access to quality preschool education.
Anchor Bay School District is in the planning stages to expand our preschool programs to meet this initiative. We have created a survey for parents to fill out to give us an idea of how many classrooms, teachers, and other resources we need to have in place to offer PreK for All. Any family that would be interested in have their child attend preschool at Anchor Bay is encouraged to fill out the survey.

If you have a child that will be 4-years-old by December 1st, 2024, or 3-years-old by September 1st, 2025, please take the time to fill out our online survey:

For questions about current preschool options, please contact the Early Childhood Center at 586.716.7862. The survey will be open until March 31st.
