Early Childhood and Elementary Programs
Welcome to the Early Childhood program of the Grand Rapids Christian Schools. We feel that the early years should be a positive, wonder-filled time of learning. Children are actively learning about their place in the world, among family, friends, and the community. During these foundational years, each child, created in the image of God, constructs their knowledge and understanding of everything in God’s world as they become discerning stewards doing His will.
Within a safe, Christ-centered environment, early childhood students at Grand Rapids Christian Schools engage with caring teachers who purposefully provide experiences to achieve both developmental and academic goals and position children for future success while respecting the pace of childhood. Students are given the freedom to make choices within an intentional plan of activities that build social and academic skills.
We see you as important partners in this. Our classroom environment reflects God’s creation inspiring children to know God’s world, learn from it, and care for it. Teachers are central to the educational setting, modeling a Christ-centered, joy-filled life. Your child will find themselves to be excited about learning, exploring, experimenting, and expanding their knowledge and friendships. Our program is designed to be a Christ-centered, hands-on, intellectually engaging, child-focused curriculum based on the Michigan State Benchmarks.
