Hemlock Childcare Center Remodeled for

      Board Members Cutting A Ribbon

      Hemlock Board of Education cut the ribbon on our newly remodeled infant and toddler childcare program rooms.

      Early Childhood Director, Wendy Plewa said, "We feel so fortunate to have these beautifully remodeled rooms to care for our littlest Huskie children. A lot of thought, care and research went into the design and aesthetics’ of each of the rooms. A huge shout out to RaeAnn Woodcock, High School Art Teacher, and her extraordinary student team! They transformed the walls in each room to create the coolest nature scenes ever! I love walking into those rooms daily and observing the infants and toddlers playing, laughing, learning, and growing!”

      As Hemlock Public Schools prepare for future enrollment, the childcare center helps the need for working parents in the area. This is just another example of how Hemlock continues to improve and expand opportunities for children and families.

      The Early Childhood programs, which include, infant and toddler care, childcare, 3 and 4-year-old preschool, and Champ Camp AM and PM care, are all in high demand. Some programs have a waiting list.

      Board of Education President Dr. Ellison noted, “Hemlock's childcare is a great program that fills the gap between birth and kindergarten--helping children develop and learn in an educational environment they can grow up in." 

      Registration is now open for children ages 2 ½ - 12 years old. Our focus is Learning Through Play. Children will participate in daily hands-on learning experiences during choice time, small group and large group activities, and outside time. Our Lead teacher and Daycare assistants are loving, dedicated and will engage your child in interesting and fun activities which will help them to: PLAY * EXPLORE * DISCOVER * GROW * LEARN!

      Wendy Plewa is the Childcare Director. She has a Master’s degree in Reading Education and a Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education and 19 years of early childhood teaching experience.
