See Why Families Love Their Preschool Program
Finding The Right Preschool
With the new year comes a new task for parents of young kids: preschool hunting!
Finding the right preschool for your child can be an intimidating task, especially in a city like Grand Rapids, where there are many excellent choices for education.
For those seeking a high-quality, nurturing start to Christian education, Hudsonville Christian School may be the preschool your family has been searching for.
Hudsonville Christian’s Faith-Filled Curriculum
Located just a short drive from Grand Rapids, Hudsonville Christian School (HCS) has been a part of the Hudsonville community for over 90 years, providing academic excellence in an inclusive and supportive environment for students in preschool through eighth grade. Students’ minds, bodies, and spirits are fostered through a challenging core curriculum, an array of extracurriculars and special programs (such as art, computer, music, and Spanish), and above all, a prayerful and genuine desire to integrate faith with all aspects of learning.
Gina VanWoerkom, the early childhood director, says she especially appreciates how “we can incorporate faith in everything we do–it’s woven throughout all of our curriculum. Not just through Bible stories but through the way we teach and how every situation is handled.”
Proud to be a School for All Children
Gina also says that the preschool at HCS stands out from neighboring schools in its excellent staff, all of whom are certified with advanced degrees in early childhood education. In addition, the preschool goes above-and-beyond in being inclusive of all children, especially those who may have disabilities. An extensive support system of staff members help all children to be a part of the class without fear or stigma. “It’s really neat to see how everyone learns from each other,” says Gina.
Come and See the Hudsonville Difference!
If any of this sounds great to you, mark your calendars for January 19 at 6:30 PM for Early Childhood Exploration Night, to learn more about the programs HCS offers for children ages 3 to 5. The evening will begin with a parent presentation (with childcare provided during this time!) followed by an open house where both parents and children can enjoy refreshments, tour the school, and meet the teachers.
And here’s a little tip: preschool at HCS can be completely free, through HCS’s Preschool Grant! Check out their website to see how.
We all want our children to have the very best education we can offer, from the very beginning of their academic journey. Schools like Hudsonville Christian School are here to make the search easier for you and your family. Contact Gina at [email protected] if you have any questions.
