Woodcliff Early Childhood Center is pleased to offer Three-Year-Old, Four-Year-Old, and Five-Year-Old preschool classes at our NAEYC accredited Early Childhood Center.

Following the NAEYC preschool guidelines, our preschool programs nurture the child’s intellectual, emotional, social, and physical growth. Our curriculum and assessments are aligned with East Grand Rapids Public Schools Kindergarten curriculum. Our preschool teachers meet regularly to discuss curriculum, assessments, and programs that will best meet the needs of the whole child. Handwriting Without Tears and Zoo-Phonics are implemented throughout the year. Enrichment activities including music as well as field trips are part of our preschool program. Each child is unique and we strive to differentiate our curriculum to meet individual needs. Our preschool program follows the EGRPS calendar. Please refer to our preschool brochure and links below for preschool class schedules and tuition.
