Early Childhood Education Night January 31st!

Early Childhood Education

Do you or does someone you know have a child in preschool, junior kindergarten, or kindergarten?

Early Childhood Education

On January 31st at 6:30pm, Grandville Christian Schools will be hosting an Early Childhood Education Open House for families to explore Polka Dot Garden preschool and Grandville Calvin Christian Elementary School’s kindergarten and junior kindergarten programs, and all they have to offer. We believe our programs offer an unparalleled preschool experience that will help your child learn to think critically and develop a strong relationship with God.

Why Should You Enroll Your Child?

At Grandville Calvin Christian, we believe in infusing experiential learning into our classrooms each and everyday. Students enrolled at Polka Dot Garden preschool are constantly exploring both indoors and outdoors, and learning about God’s creation. Polka Dot Garden Preschool offers both English and Spanish Immersion classes to equip your child for success. We offer these two distinct and equally important paths, because we believe in providing different tracts to best suit your and your child’s needs.

Our junior kindergarten and kindergarten programs both offer creative playtime and curriculum that grows your child’s mind. In addition to personalized curriculum, our staff offers a loving, nurturing, and creative world for your child to learn and grow!

Visit the Facebook event page for more reminders and updates! We hope to see you there!
