Awesome school! One of the best schools in Grand Rapids. Perfect school for those looking for something less traditional. Hands on learning, getting the students involved in the learning process. Teachers work on academics but also help students with social skills. The school is welcoming to parents and families. My children loved it here!!

Our children have thrived at this school. They are confident, have formed amazing relationships with school leaders and classmates, and have a strong love and desire for learning. This place is like a second home to our family, and we couldn't recommend it strongly enough.

Grand Rapids Child Discovery Center has been the perfect fit for my daughter. Following the Reggio Emilia Philosophy, the curriculum is emergent and engages each student in owning his/her education. Students are respected and seen as capable of reaching their full potential. To do this, they are given opportunities to learn in many different ways. This helps to build the confidence of the child, engages them in learning and teaches critical thinking. This is all happening in relationship with the teachers, other students, parents and the environment. This holistic approach to learning and emphasis on celebrating children has built a love for reading, writing and math in my daughter, as well as the confidence to push herself and accept challenges.Not only does GRCDC provide an enriching scholastic environment, they truly are providing and education based on relationships. I have never had such a deep feeling of community, as I did almost immediately after my daughter started Kindergarten. The school also teaches appropriate social behavior and methods of problem solving among themselves. The product of this focus is a community of young children who hold each other accountable for their behavior and respond with empathy to each other and the world. In GRCDC, I have found a truly pluralistic community. My daughter consistently tells me how people's differences are what makes them special and makes the world a better place. In a time when we can find so many things wrong in the world. GRCDC is a place where you can see, hear and feel what is right. It keeps me hopeful on a regular basis!

My son has attended this school since he was a toddler, as they have an infant/toddler and preschool program. He is entering the fourth grade this fall, and LOVES going to school here. They utilize the Reggio Emilia approach, which is far more engaging for the children than traditional education. If your child requires a ton of structure, it may not be for you, but most kids will thrive in this environment. Check it out, as it is unlike any other in Grand Rapids. Most of the teachers here are exceptional!
