Our infant and toddler rooms are located on the lower level of Centennial Hall at the corner of Orange and Hurley Streets. We are open Monday through Friday from 7:00 am. to 6:00 pm. Offering the best infant to caregiver ratio (3:1) in the Grand Rapids area, we have two spacious, comfortable rooms providing a safe, nurturing environment. At one year of age, children transition to our toddler rooms where they flourish in a child-centered atmosphere with a predictable daily routine and a four to one teacher ratio. Children can attend 2 ,3, 4, or 5 days a week.


Preschool Programs

   Program Director – Jane Klein (616) 942-8795

Our preschool programs are located upstairs in Centennial Hall on the end nearest the historic, white chapel. Preschool education is a part of our morning routine, with learning extended throughout the day. Children can join our Christian school for the entire day of learning, for an extended 5 hour day, or for a traditional 3 hour preschool session. They can attend on a flexible schedule 2, 3, 4 or 5 days a week year round. Those who are enrolled for the traditional 3 hour preschool session usually attend 2 or 3 days a week from September to May and can add time on to their days as needed for $5.00 an hour. Because we work with your schedule and as a team with your family, you are welcome to adjust your schedule as space allows.

Caregivers and Teachers – Our caregivers and teachers delight in providing quality care that enriches your child's development, and as a result we have extremely low staff turnover. They are well- educated, first-aid and CPR certified, with spotless background checks, and excellent early childhood credentials.
