Grandville Public School District



About Our Program

Our preschool is a nonprofit program operated through the Community Education Program of Grandville Public Schools. The tuition paid by parents pays the instructors, buys supplies and provides a daily nutritious snack. Grandville preschool teachers possess either a bachelor's degree or an associate's degree in early childhood education and are certified in CPR and First Aid.


Our preschool balances structured with unstructured activities. In daily free play, children select their own activities from a variety of planned projects. Within the limits of safety and courtesy to classmates, we allow them to explore, improve motor skills, create an imaginary world, and ready themselves for future schooling. In small and large group activities, our staff provides more structured opportunities for each child's involvement. We are not providing academic programs that duplicate the kindergarten experiences to come.
Highly endorsed by the National Association for the Education of Young Children, The Creative Curriculum is the guidepost for the district’s preschool teachers. The teachers use open-ended, hands-on activities that appeal to a wide range of young learners, including visual, kinesthetic and auditory activities.

How Can Your Child Benefit?

Our program gives your preschooler the opportunity to explore, create and interact while learning to feel comfortable in a school routine. We foster each child's emotional, intellectual and social growth and individualize instruction. Our buildings have secure, locked entryways for peace of mind.
