Sylvan Head Start is nestled in the Plymouth Heights neighborhood, sharing a building with Sylvan II Head Start, and 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 10 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 D.O.G.S., and special speakers from the community. Our friendly, multi ethnic staff is always available to offer assistance and welcomes family engagement and community partnerships.
