Combining Academic Excellence with a Loving Atmosphere
The Preschool Dilemma
I remember when my oldest child became old enough for us to start thinking about what preschool to send her to. Should we try a co-op? Should we go half-day, all-day, two-days, or three-days? Do we want a play-based environment or something more academic?
As we took tours of schools, visited open houses, and talked to different parents and teachers, we were intimidated by the number of choices. Which one to go with?! In the end, focusing on our priorities as a family and the individual needs of our child helped us to choose the right school.
If having a safe, loving Christian environment with plenty of options is a priority for you and your family, Legacy Christian School in Grand Rapids may be the place for you.
With about 400 students in preschool through eighth grade, the school strives for excellence in academics while integrating the Christian faith into all aspects of student life. Faith is not only taught, but lived out, especially by the wonderful staff.
