*Family must be interviewed to be accepted in program so we can match the days you want for specials and the curriculum needs. There is a great match for everyone, but we best figure it out by understanding what each family needs and wants, as one size doesn’t fit all, and we understand that.

Scholarship and Financial Assistance Options: If your family earns under $50,000, you immediately qualify for “Affordable for All” scholarships. Families above the $50,000 level may also qualify depending on number of family members or extenuating circumstances. All families must have their tax forms to go through process with financial board officer/and administrator.

Special Projects Profit Earnings: Each parent can earn $10 an hour working on special projects of Pig in the Blankets to contribute towards tuition. More information available upon enrollment. Some families earn as much as $1000 each year towards tuition.

TRIP: Apply money you already spend towards the TRIP program and get money back in the form of tuition dollars. Learn more about the TRIP program, which helps pay your tuition bill, while you pay your normal bills.


Our preschool is an amazing experience for three and four year old children. Our teacher, Lynae Graveling, a well experienced preschool and kindergarten teacher from the Zeeland/Hudsonville area joins South Olive Christian School. Lynae and her husband have a preschool daughter, and are soon to have another little girl join their family. Lynae’s experience at Hudsonville Public School and in various other preschool programs make us ever so excited for what she brings to bless us at SOCS. With a focus on learning about Jesus and his word in a hands on project/thematic approach in which the world makes sense is always a great way to learn! Literacy and working on kindergarten readiness is always a focus, while using our greenhouse, outdoor spaces, makers space, gym, music room, art space, and other fantastic facilities to learn more about God’s world. We are embraced as a beloved member of the South Olive Christian School Community, and get the opportunity to enjoy VIP Day with grandparents, Pastor’s Feast, the Christmas Concert, and many other wonderful activities above and beyond a basic preschool experience, as a part of a Christian community.

“Train up a child in the way he should go, even when he is old he will not depart from it.” Proverbs 22:6

A Christian Preschool for your Child

Director:Lynae Graveling
My name is Lynae Graveling and I’m excited to start my first year teaching at South Olive! I previously have taught preschool, young fives, and kindergarten! I took 2 years off when my oldest daughter was born, but feel God calling me back to work in this part-time setting! I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to work with early childhood and can’t wait to see what the year holds! I am married to my husband, Bruce, and we have an almost 2-year old daughter named Kinsley.  We are also expecting and another little girl will be joining our family mid-October, we’re so excited! We live in Allendale and are members at Calvary Church in Holland. I enjoy spending time with my family, camping, boating, and going to the beach! I also love to read! I look forward to being part of the South Olive community! 

With so many choices available today, selecting the best preschool to fit the needs of your child and your family can seem complicated. The program at South Olive Christian School is designed to suit the individuality of your preschooler with scheduling options to match the needs of your family. Preschool students ages 3 to 5 can attend half-day programs, 2 or 3 days a week.
