Welcome to Solutions Learning Group of Muskegon, Michigan! Here at our centers, we promote the growth and development of children’s well-being from infancy to 12 years of age. How do we do that every day? In early childhood education, that means first providing a safe space for children–one in which they can count on loving, dependable staff to provide them with safe playing and learning opportunities. From vibrant learning rituals to healthy food, we provide your child with an environment that primes them for a lifetime of success.

OUR MISSION

To promote the growth and development of children’s well-being from infancy to 12 years of age.

OUR VISION

Creating successful learners for today’s world.

OUR PHILOSOPHY

 

We work to complement your family life by nurturing your child’s body, mind, and spirit. By working together, we develop your child into a happy and successful “big school” student.

Our hope is to provide an enriched educational experience with a balanced curriculum that seeks to develop the whole child through cognitive, physical, social, emotional and creative development.

Our centers focus on supporting a peaceful safe home away from home experience with an environment that stimulates activities to help promote the child’s curiosity to learn. This environment honor’s the child’s need to work through play. While encouraging self-expression, creativity, and individuality, the environment also should be orderly predictable and with healthy limitations. Through the guidance of the provider/teachers, the child will know that someone is in charge of helping them select safe and appropriate risks. A good program will bring together children of different backgrounds, talents and abilities all while maintaining a balance of freedom, and structure. All children are accepted for who they are and what they do.

Meet the Staff

We tend to each child’s physical needs as the need arises. These needs include, but are not limited to, diapering, toilet training, incidents, accidents, meals, cleanliness, and overall well-being. Speak to children of all ages in a calm, kind voice, and with respect always.

Stephanie Marion

Three things come naturally to Stephanie Marion, CFO and Founder of Solutions Learning Group in Muskegon, Michigan: leadership, inspiring children, and fostering growth in the community. Utilizing her academic backdrop including a Master of Arts in Educational Leadership and K-12 School Principalship, Stephanie’s goals of supporting early childhood learning and family have led her to play many roles—teacher, principal, and executive board member. Her experiences in theater, special education, and community development, as well as many other leadership positions, have created a foundation upon which a lifetime of educational achievement and entrepreneurial endeavors have been built.

Currently, Stephanie’s mission to support young learners at Solutions Learning Group involves a weekly schedule of facilitating multiple early childhood learning centers with her guidance and administration of the teaching staff, students and program details. With a teaching philosophy that hinges upon supporting the creative dreams of children, her goal is to foster an environment of mutual respect, communication, and collaboration with parents and families. It is a lifetime of effort that cultivates a legacy of growth and includes a lot of hard work, but when there is downtime, you can find Stephanie enjoying moments with her daughter, Julianna and her dog, Pepper. She enjoys travel, lifelong-learning, and practicing her faith.
