Welcome to the Children's Enrichment Center
We are the home of the "Littlest Lakers"
serving families of GVSU and the surrounding communities since the early 1970s
The CEC operates with 3 classrooms supported by Teaching Strategies Creative Curriculum and Gold Assessment Programs. Each classroom has a full-time lead teacher with a BA/BS in education or education related field. Our assistant teachers are all undergraduate students pursuing education or child related fields. The CEC runs a year round preschool program serving children ages 2.5 years - 5 years of age in the mornings with enrichment opportunities offered throughout the day. We also offer before and after school care for local Allendale elementary students up to age 12 with transportation provided by Allendale Public School Transportation.
Our mission here at the CEC is to educate children, families, and students to shape their lives and societies in order to nurture habits of intellectual growth, curiosity, and a love for learning.
Our Values: Education, Families, Community, and Character.
