About Us

The FriendShip is dedicated to promote cognitive, physical, social, and emotional development through safe and exciting ways of learning.

About Me
Hello. My name is Kerri Leverence. I am the owner and primary caregiver at The FriendShip. I have been caring for children for over fifteen years. I am certified in CPR and First Aid.  In 2001 I graduated from Grand Valley State University with a Bachelors degree in Psychology. I also have an Associates degree in Child Development.  The FriendShip Preschool and Daycare was opened because I love children and have a passion for teaching.  I have dedicated the lower level of our home to Child Development.  I promise to nurture your child as if he or she was my own.

My Philosophy
I believe that all children deserve love, attention, and nurturing. I believe that a safe environment allows children to explore and grow. At The FriendShip, we allow children to have hands-on learning experiences. This fosters age appropriate development. I read to the children everyday. I believe that positive reinforcement is important for children to develop self-esteem. Children need an environment that supports free expression and stimulates learning. Most importantly, however, I believe that children need to have fun!  At The FriendShip we love to have ice cream parties where we make the ice cream ourselves, play exciting games, and have Pajama Days.  Children learn best from experiencing the world around them.
