Window cleaners wash glass panes until they’re sparkling and transparent, and gutters choked with leaves, tree limbs, and dams built by industrial squirrels channel water easily after cleaners unclog downspouts and conduct small gutter repairs.

For more than three decades, the specialists at USA Insulation have protected the walls and rooftops of Michiganders’ homes from the capricious elements outside. To make homes more comfortable and energy efficient, the team uses USA Premium Insulation foam—a water-based, eco-friendly product that can be discreetly installed without disturbing the pre-existing brick, stucco, or wood and vinyl siding. After filling out the voids left by cellulose or fiberglass insulation, the foam expands further to provide an extra layer of thermal and acoustic protection that drowns out the neighbor’s garage rock band or inexplicably terrifying laughter.

The caretakers at The Learning Experience emphasize education first, employing a proven set of teaching methods such as Fun with Phonics and their own L.E.A.P. program, designed to meet children at their current level of development.

Besides preparing preschoolers for kindergarten with accelerated literacy and critical thinking, the curriculum includes introductions to modern technology, from digital cameras to DVD players.
