The Early Education Center (EEC), established and operated by Starfish, is part of the Marygrove P-20 education model. What is P-20? An all-in-one campus offering a continuum of support for families starting with prenatal partnership and extending to K-12 and pathways beyond. It is also called Cradle-to-Career.

Why is P-20 so revolutionary? 

P-20 is transforming the educational landscape in Detroit. Grounded in social justice, equitable opportunity, and commitment to community, the P-20 model honors the 90+ year legacy of Marygrove College by elevating it to a new standard of exceptional. By providing access to high-quality education and holistic support services, students and
families are empowered to define their own futures and that of their own neighborhood.

What is the Starfish role? 

Based on our nearly 60 years of leadership in early childhood development, Starfish was chosen to establish and operate an exemplar Marygrove Early Education Center (EEC) that sets the foundation for the opportunities on the P-20 campus. Together with the P-20 partners, Starfish will implement and test new best practices that can be replicated regionally and nationally.

Frequently Asked Questions


What ages are enrolled at the Marygrove Early Childhood Center?

We have multiple openings for infants, toddlers, and preschoolers from 6 weeks to age 5.

When did the Marygrove EEC open?

Our first day of school started on Tuesday, September 7, 2021.

Is it possible to tour the Marygrove EEC?

Tours will be offered, but only as pandemic health data allows. All tours must be prearranged with Starfish.

Will only children in the Marygrove neighborhood attend?

Not necessarily. Priority will be given, however, to families who reside in a 1- to 2-mile “catchment” area surrounding Marygrove.

  • These priority areas are the same as The School at Marygrove’s catchment areas.
  • Families living elsewhere are invited to apply, but will not receive the neighborhood enrollment priority.
What are the boundaries of the neighborhood priority area?
  • These priority areas are the same as The School at Marygrove’s catchment areas.
  • The primary area is bound by 7 Mile to the north, Parkside St. to the east, Fenkell St. to the south, and Appoline St. to the west.
  • The secondary area is bound by 8 Mile to the north, Schoolcraft St. to the south, and Marlowe St. to the west. Please refer to the catchment area map for the eastern boundary.
Does the Marygrove EEC reflect a diverse community of employees, families, and students?
  • Yes! All of the valued Marygrove campus partners, including Starfish Family Services, are committed to diversity, equity, and inclusion.
  • Our student enrollment priority criteria ensure a diverse student community within a diverse Marygrove campus community.
  • Our curriculum is based on social justice and was crafted to uplift a diverse spectrum of little learners in an urban setting.

  • Applications on the waitlist will be considered in subsequent monthly reviews based on when the application was first submitted, along with the enrollment priorities. (See also “Applying & Enrolling”)
How much does it cost to attend the Marygrove EEC?
  • Our center is unique in that it reflects a “braided model” of enrollment.
  • This means that some students may be eligible for federal- or state-funded support (Early Head Start, Head Start, Great Start Readiness Program) and others pay private tuition.
  • 2021-2022 tuition rates:
    • Infants and toddlers – $325 per week
    • Preschoolers – $275 per week
    • Extended care fee – $50.00 per week
  • Scholarships or other types of subsidy assistance may be available.

Does the Marygrove EEC impact existing early childhood providers in the neighborhood?
  • Studies have shown a very real need for more early childhood seats. According to IFF, 27,000 children in Detroit lack access to early childhood education.
  • We are excited to help serve the neighborhoods by helping fill this gap and are eager to work with providers in the area to ensure every child has an equal opportunity to the best education possible.

Applying & Enrollment

How do I apply? What documents do I need?

The first step of the enrollment process is filling out our online pre-registration form. Once submitted, you will be contacted by a friendly Starfish Family Service Guide, who will help you to complete the enrollment process. This includes providing a list of required documents and deadlines. For example, documents reflecting proof of income are needed for families to be eligible for federal- or state-funded support, or possible scholarships or other subsidy assistance.

How are enrollment decisions made? What are the factors involved in decision-making?

Starfish bases decisions on enrollment priority points, along with the availability of seats within each funding source for each age group.

  • Starfish reviews each application using a rubric (a set of guidelines) that includes a consistent set of enrollment priority criteria.
  • Starfish uses the rubric to assign each applicant a certain set of “enrollment priority points,” such as:
    • Whether your family lives in the primary or secondary priority areas
    • Whether your child has a sibling already enrolled at the Marygove EEC or The School at Marygrove.
    • Head Start-applicable priorities, such as whether your child has been diagnosed with disabilities, chronic health conditions, etc.
    • Family economic needs, such as whether the parent(s) or caregiver(s) are employed, and the number of parents in the household, etc.
  • Starfish also has a predetermined number of seats designated for children eligible for federal funding (Head Start and Early Head Start), state funding (Great Start Readiness Program), and private-pay tuition.
How often are enrollment decisions made?
  • Enrollment decisions are made at the end of each month.
  • You will be notified during the last week of each month if your child is enrolled.
  • If your child is not enrolled, you will have the option to join the waitlist for the next month’s enrollment cycle.
  • Applicants will be considered based on when your family’s application was submitted, along with the enrollment priorities.
What are some reasons why my child is not enrolled in a particular cycle?
  • Your child may not have been enrolled during a particular cycle if other applications earned higher enrollment priority points. For example, more families may have applied from the primary catchment area. The Starfish team is happy to discuss enrollment priority points with you further.
  • Your child may not have been selected during a particular cycle if the seats for your child’s particular age group have already been filled. Families may choose to join the waitlist and be notified as seats for your child’s age group become available in the future.
Is the fact that we are not a tuition-paying family one of the reasons my child is not selected?
  • No! Most seats at the center are not designated for tuition-paying families.
  • 96 out of the total 144 seats (67%) are designated for federally- or state-funded seats, including Head Start, Early Head Start, and Great Start Readiness Program. Income-eligible families will automatically be considered for those available seats.
Do children of staff receive enrollment priority?

No. Starfish does not give enrollment priority to children of staff at Starfish or its partners in the Marygrove P-20 Project, including The School at Marygrove, the University of Michigan, and the Marygrove Conservancy.

If my child is accepted, what documents will I need to submit, and by when to hold my child’s place?

You will work with your Starfish Family Service Guide, our Assistant Principal, and our School Administrative Assistant to complete all the required forms and any applicable registration fees.

What’s the overall approach for early childhood learning?
  • We believe academic and social success is achieved through a whole-child focus. This means offering high-quality early childhood education and addressing behavioral health needs.
  • The Marygrove Early Education Center will provide comprehensive early childhood programming that connects families with infants, toddlers, and preschoolers to the services they need to flourish.
Can you tell prospective parents more about the curriculum?

Great First Eight (for infants and toddlers) and Connect4Learning (for preschoolers) are brand-new, high-quality curricula customized specifically for EEC little learners.

  • Developed in collaboration with nationally recognized University of Michigan education scholars
  • Culturally responsive and aligned to the latest research and standards
  • Priority is placed on diversity, equity, and inclusion
  • Aligned to national standards in science, social studies, mathematics, literacy, social and emotional learning, and social justice
  • STEM & social studies emphasis
  • Focus on interactive, hands-on learning and individual creativity
  • Crafted for a seamless transition as children graduate from preschool to K-12 on the same campus.
How does the curriculum adapt for diverse learners?

Starfish supports each child’s individual development to reach their highest potential. We encourage little learners with individualized lesson plans that are responsive to each child’s interests, strengths, and needs.

Who is training the instructors in the early childhood program?
  • The developers of the Great First Eight and Connect4Learning curriculums will support our early childhood teaching teams.
  • In addition, Starfish’s Early Childhood Specialists are trained in both curriculums and provide classroom support for teachers to implement the curriculum.
What are the requirements or credentials necessary for Marygrove EEC teachers?
  • We require that teachers hold a Bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood Education (or equivalent degree program) with a minimum of two years of experience working in an early childhood classroom.
  • It takes far more than a degree, however, for the right person to flourish at Marygrove. They need passion, purpose, and potential.
    • Educators who are dedicated to celebrating diversity and equity in the classroom.
    • Educators who are fearless about jumping into a pioneering environment that is very high profile.
    • Educators who are committed to radically redefining education for young children.
    • Educators who are committed to partnering with families to successfully support their little learners.
Is the University of Michigan’s School of Education (SOE) going to be involved in ongoing professional development and training?

The University of Michigan SOE, the Detroit Public Schools Community District, Marygrove Conservancy, and Starfish Family Services will engage in shared professional development that supports the campus and its mission.

How to develop your child’s talents

The Developmental Center for Children is an organization in which children are helped to adapt to society and develop their talents and knowledge. An individual approach allows any kid to learn new information and practice skills at a pace that is comfortable for him.

The cost of lessons in private children’s institutions varies depending on the methods and number of visits. In this article on the portal, we will tell you what factors influence pricing and what you can save on.

Tuition fee at the development center

Classes are paid by the hour, for several lessons or per month.
Hourly pay is beneficial during the child’s getting used to the team, when he does not spend much time in the group. At any time, the baby can refuse to visit, so parents will not lose money for pre-paid time. An hour costs from 180₽ to 400₽.

Payment for the day
will cost much less. After all, she assumes that the child is engaged in several hours. Therefore, for a day you will pay from 900 ₽ to 2,500 ₽, which is approximately 5-6 times more profitable than for an hour.

Some organizations take
fee only for conducting training events . They cost from 350₽ to 1900₽.

further reduces the price per day. Its cost depends on how many times a week there are developing lessons. Usually it is from 1 to 2 visits. A monthly subscription costs from 14,000 rubles to 45,000 rubles, on average – 29,500 rubles. A wide range of prices is related to what services children’s institutions offer and what they include: they usually have a swimming pool, a sports ground, a treatment room and psychological consultations. A set of activities can be included in the package, or parents can choose only those that suit them.

We considered options when a child stays in a group from 4 hours 2 times a week to 12 hours for 5 days. The subscription price includes group classes and wellness treatments for children of all ages.

Number of lessons

average price
1 month – 4 16 330₽
3 months – 12 20 660₽
6 months – 24 27 635₽

What makes up the price of education in early development centers

The cost of attending developmental classes depends on several factors:

  • Location of . If the institution is located in a residential area, the cost will be lower than in the city center.
  • Infrastructure . The pool and gym will increase the pay.
  • Seasonality . Usually, during the winter and summer holidays, lesson fees are reduced, which is beneficial for parents who do not plan vacations during these periods and continue to work.
  • The time the child spends in class . Paying for a day with a stay of 12, 8 or 6 hours will be cheaper if you rarely use the services of teachers. If you are taking the course for a long time, you should purchase a subscription.
  • Number of procedures . For example, the price of a lesson in an early development school according to the method of Maria Montessori will be lower than where several author’s approaches are combined.
  • Number of children in the group . The smaller the person in it, the more parents will have to pay.

In order not to overpay, choose organizations that have only those courses that you need. Find out in advance what is included in the price and remove unnecessary ones from the list of services.

How to reduce the price of education in a development center

Children’s centers reduce prices not only during the holidays, they offer the following discounts:

  • Education of the second child from the family is cheaper by 20-50%;
  • Referral by referral up to 30% cheaper;
  • Morning or evening classes up to 20% off.

To attract customers, children’s institutions offer to spend a free day or the first lesson in a group. This allows parents to find out if the chosen courses are suitable for them and whether the baby likes them.

Some organizations arrange free testing for children by a psychologist in order to determine their psychotype and temperament and find an approach to them so that they study better and feel good in a team. When buying a subscription for a long time, they give additional free workshops. With the beginning of spring, they organize express preparation for school on special offers – below the full preparatory course.

A.R. Luria

During the summer months the Center is open only on weekdays, from 10 am to 6 pm.

We are pleased to welcome you to the official website of the Research Center for Children’s Neuropsychology. A.R. Luria. Let me introduce you to information about our psychological center. Perhaps it will help you make the right choice.

The Center for Child Neuropsychology was established in 1999. Now we employ more than forty qualified specialists: neuropsychologists, early development psychologists, neurolinguists, child and family psychotherapists, speech therapists, etc., of which 1 doctor of psychological sciences and 4 candidates of psychological sciences.

The Center for Child Neuropsychology has four departments in different districts of Moscow, which allows children to study close to home.

Many people know the favorite saying of Alexander Romanovich Luria that there is nothing more practical than a good theory. Our Children’s Psychological Center in Moscow is a model for the practical application of the developments of domestic psychology, and first of all, the ideas of A. R. Luria and L. S. Vygotsky in the practice of neuropsychological diagnosis and correction of learning difficulties and children’s behavior.

The complexity of the approach is provided by a combination of individual and group methods of cognitive, motor, emotional and personal correction and body-oriented therapy at each lesson.

One of the forms of work in our children’s psychological center is classes in dyads. Conducting classes in dyads is unique, as it combines the advantages of a group lesson (game, competitive moments, the opportunity to communicate and increase motivation for learning) and individual work (the ability to pay more attention to each child separately).

Conducting classes in dyads requires from the leading specialist a double return of energy and special skill and professionalism both in their creation and in the process of the lesson itself. Particular attention is paid to the question of the optimal composition of dyads. Methods of work in dyads were scientifically substantiated, tested, protected by us and positively proved themselves during the 14-year work of the Center.

We attach great importance to working with parents, both in the form of family consultations, training seminars for parents, and publishing popular articles and books for parents.

Specialists of our Center are regularly invited to the media as experts and consultants on issues of child psychology and neuropsychology.

Research Center for Child Neuropsychology is the base for professional training of specialists and students from Moscow State University. M.V. Lomonosov and a number of other leading universities in Moscow and foreign countries.

We are in numbers

more than 2500

The key to the success of our work are two conditions:

1. High qualification of specialists, and it is supported by a permanent scientific and practical seminar. There is an exchange of experience between the staff of our Center and leading specialists from other related organizations, and also, together (brainstorming) discusses how best to help a particular child.

All innovative technologies are introduced into practice, described in books and articles, and presented at scientific conferences. For less than 20 years, the staff of the Center have published more than 26 books and 70 scientific articles, and have taken part in many domestic and international congresses and conferences.

2. Favorable psychological work climate. This is important, first of all, for the children with whom we work, since a child with a sad and traumatic experience of failure and censure should, thanks to classes with a child psychologist, go through a situation of success and make sure that Learning is easy!

This is ensured not only by the professional, but also by the personal qualities of the specialists of our Children’s Neuropsychological Center. And that is why our anthem contains the following words:

He can share the light,
Who knows how to shine himself,
Who can give a particle of his soul
Can gladly give.
