A: Thank you for contacting the City of Holland! Wow, that is a jump from south Texas to West Michigan. It’s always great to hear about people moving to Michigan from out of state, especially to our area. Although Holland is rich in Dutch heritage, we are slowly becoming a melting pot welcoming people from different states, countries, cultures and walks of life creating a great environment for all, including families. The City is home to great doctors, hospitals, schools and any resource a family would want and need. The City also offers different living styles, from downtown lofts to large lot single family home neighborhoods. Please take a moment to check out the different neighborhoods within the City of Holland.
Holland Hospital is located in the City of Holland and houses the Boven Birth Center where they “Celebrate babies and their families by providing everything a newborn needs for an excellent start in life”.
No doubt families require good child care. I encourage you to check out websites, talk to someone at Holland Hospital or by word of mouth through your husband’s new job. There is something out there for everyone. And please be assured that when your children are ready, top schools in the area await them.
