ALLENDALE CHILDREN'S CENTER

A Note from our Director:
It is my privilege to welcome you to Allendale Children’s Center . I feel blessed that you have chosen our preschool for your child’s social-emotional and academic needs. Educating and caring for young children is my greatest passion in life and I fully believe that God has chosen this path for me and is watching over our center everyday to ensure that your children are safe, loved, and well-cared for.
Today, school starts before Kindergarten and it is our job to begin to prepare children for a love of life-long learning and success. We believe our programs will aid in this preparation and we are so proud to offer four year old students, free voluntary pre-kindergarten (VPK).
Our staff are true educators and possess an innate love for children as most of us are parents ourselves. I look forward to cultivating great professional relationships with all of you so please do not hesitate to contact or come see me if I can be of help to you and your family.
In God’s Love,
Jeni Lyn Smagacz (Ms. Jeni)

Allendale Children’s Center is committed to providing learning experiences for each child in preparation for long-term social-emotional success and school readiness. Our goal is to provide a learning environment that supports children to develop the strengths and skills necessary for them to construct their own knowledge and prepare them for their next school environment.
Guided by high expectations, our preschool staff will provide students with a broad range of educational opportunities for an early start for school success. We will strive to develop cognitive skills as well as provide experiences that enrich each child's social-emotional, spiritual, physical, and creative abilities.
Children will be in a learning environment in which they can solve problems and express their feelings through words, actions, art and other creative areas. Children will be exposed to different cultural experiences as well as the love of God, which is modeled and encouraged by our staff.
Parents are an integral part of the educational process and we encourage regular communication with our staff through the use of the app Class Dojo.
Students will enter kindergarten with the necessary skills to promote lifelong learning.
