Sylvan is one of Head Start for Kent County’s largest facilities serving 280 preschool children. We are nestled in the Plymouth Heights neighborhood, sharing a building with Grand Rapids Christian School’s Evergreen Campus, directly across the street from Mulick Park. Our students have access to two gyms, 2 playgrounds, a large well maintained field, a music room and 14 enriched learning classroom environments. At Sylvan Head Start, we provide social services, transportation, food services, and we house the early learning coach specialists. Our extracurricular programs include Mind Meets Music, MSU Extension’s Nutrition Program, PBIS, Foster Grandparents, Watch Dogs, and special speakers from the community. Our friendly, multi ethnic staff is always available to offer assistance and welcomes family engagement and community partnerships.
