GRAND RAPIDS, MIch. (WOOD) - When it comes to early childhood education there are endless options for parents to choose from. It can often be an overwhelming experience for families.

-Fun activities for kids that incorporate learning skills for long-term success in school and in life

-Talented, highly trained teachers
-All lead teachers have a degree
-A well-rounded experience
