Grace Community Preschool
Learning and Growing in Christian Love
Established in 1991, Grace Community Preschool is a ministry of the church founded on Christian love and sound educational principles.
The philosophy of our program is based on the individuality of each child. Each child’s needs and learning abilities are placed at the forefront of our developmentally appropriate program. Preschool is a time of readiness, and students are provided the necessary tools and media needed for both social and academic growth. Young children are filled with an energy and curiosity about life and learning. At this level the child is eager and ready to make discoveries and become actively involved in his/her own learning experiences. Each day in preschool will include age appropriate, stimulating, and adventurous hands on experiences for your child.
The goals of the Grace Community Church Preschool:
- To provide a loving Christian environment where children can be nurtured and flourish socially, spiritually, physically, and mentally.
- To respect and celebrate each child’s individuality by promoting feelings of self-worth and self-confidence through love and Christian values.
- To provide a challenging creative curriculum of daily activities that will fulfill the needs of each child and prepare them for the next level of education.
Grace Community Preschool offers 2, 3 and 5 day classes for students 2 to 5 years old. We offer several different options for parents to choose from depending on their needs. The school hours are from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm, 9:00 am to 2:00 pm or full time 7:30 am to 5:30 pm. Our low teacher to student ratio makes it possible for all children to receive one on one attention in the classroom. Enrollment for all students attending our 4-year-old program is five days per week from 9:00 am – 2:00 pm with the option of full time care. All of our teachers have a degree in education and/or a CDA certificate in Early Education.
FULL TIME PROGRAM: 7:30 am to 5:30 pm
The Full Time program is available to children who are age three or older in August, at the start of the school year. This extends the hours before and after the preschool day and is a year round enrollment.
Being members of Grace Community Church and a Grace Preschool Family has allowed us to strengthen our faith as a family, create new friendships and has given us opportunities to serve our congregation and community. Our son is learning and growing academically as well as experiencing God’s love each day. Grace Preschool has become an extension of our home where the lessons we teach our child are reinforced in a loving, faith filled environment; while Grace Church worship and Sunday School have given our family the opportunity to learn and grow in Christ as a family.
Our girls built a strong childhood foundation at Grace Preschool. We wanted that feeling of familiarity and belonging from their early years to continue after they left for kindergarten. Grace Church will provide a place to grow socially and spiritually for years to come.
My family loves Grace Church and Preschool! As both church and preschool members, we feel that our children get the best possible experience all year long. The school staff and church create a nurturing environment for our children and you can really feel the sincere love they have for the kids and families. We feel blessed to have the opportunity to be a part of Grace and watch our children’s love of the Lord grow.
