Kindergarten at Grand Rapids Christian Elementary School

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.

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.

We offer a variety of Kindergarten schedules at both our Iroquois campus and our Evergreen campus, including options for before and after school care. For a complete list of Kindergarten options we will offer in 2014-2015, please click here.
