Hudsonville Early Childhood programming has been a wonderful opportunity for our three children. It has allowed me, as a working mom, to feel confident and secure knowing my children are well cared for, loved, and provided with ample learning and growth opportunities. We have utilized the all day preschool program, school age before and after school care and summer child care. Our children thoroughly enjoy their time spent in their programs and have fun, which is important. The Early Childhool staff, both in the office and at the various sites, are incredible – well organized, professional and caring. The summer programming has great activities and field trips which give the kids plenty of opportunity to have fun and enjoy the summer with their friends. I feel confident knowing my children are in a great place!
