Bay Village Schools’ Glenview Center turns 40

Bay Village Schools' new Superintendent Scot Prebles introduces himself to the district's "Little Rockets" at the Glenview Center for Child Care & Learning. The Glenview Center celebrates its 40th anniversary this year.

Bay Village City School District has a lot to celebrate in 2022. Bay High School honors its centennial anniversary, the Rockettes high school drill team celebrates 60 years, Bay High Memorial Stadium turns 50 and now the Glenview Center for Child Care & Learning celebrates its 40th birthday.

The Glenview Center – home of Bay Village Schools’ “Little Rockets” – invites past and present students and staff to attend a 40th anniversary celebration during Homecoming Week, from 5:30-7 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 6. The celebration includes tours of the facility, free frozen treats from the Kona Ice Truck, balloon entertainment, photo memories and more. All are welcome to attend, and no RSVP is needed.

Alexa Davey, director of The Glenview Center, said she hopes alumni and community members will attend to show pride and support for all that Glenview has done over the past 40 years.

“We’ll have photos from the 1980s, when The Glenview Center first opened, up until present time,” Davey said. “Our staff is looking forward to seeing alumni students and colleagues, as well as new families.”

The Glenview Center, located at 28727 Wolf Road, is a child care center and preschool affiliated with the Bay Village City School District. Glenview Center provides care for children 18 months to 5 years. In addition, it offers a before/after care and summer program for school-age students in grades K-4. The Glenview Center also houses the district's special education preschool program, SEED, that provides preschool services to students with special needs alongside their typically developing peers.

“We take pride in offering high-quality care and early education for the 204 children we serve in the Bay Village community,” Davey said. “The fact that The Glenview Center is celebrating 40 years shows the amount of success we have had and the value it has for our families.”
