Hemlock Public School District expands childcare center – Midland Daily News

Hemlock Public School District Childcare is expanding its childcare program to extend from infants through school age.


The program is under the direction of Wendy Plewa, an educator with more than a dozen years of directorship and teaching experience. Plewa is no stranger to the school district; she has served as the district’s preschool director and teacher for the last several years.

“We are thrilled to be expanding childcare options for families in our district,” Plewa said.

The childcare will be located in Hemlock Elementary, 200 Wilson St. The program was developed with three guiding principles: safe, affordable and educationally focused childcare.

“This is about meeting the needs of our community and the children,” Hemlock Superintendent Don Killingbeck said. “We have heard over and over again that this is a need in the community.”

Not unlike the district’s preschool philosophy, the educational focus of the childcare will be, “Learning through Play.”

“Children will have multiple opportunities daily to participate in high-quality and authentic hands-on learning experiences which will help to foster their creativity, imagination, individuality and interests,” Plewa said. “They will learn as they play.”

Principal Keith Green said, “I’m so excited to have this service available in our schools. This will provide a much needed service to our community and our district.”
