A Christian-Based Developmental Program

Established in 1956, Grace Weekday Preschool is an outreach ministry to families of the church congregation and the surrounding community. Our primary focus is to foster social, emotional, intellectual, physical, and spiritual growth in young children ages 2 to 5.  Recognizing that growth occurs in individual ways, every effort is made to ensure that each child develops a positive self-image and an awareness of his/her own uniqueness as one of God’s children.  Grace Weekday Preschool emphasizes Christian faith and values; we welcome children from all faiths and cultures, and of any race, color, national or ethnic origin.

All teachers of the school are experienced in preschool education and/or have a degree/credentials from an accredited college or university. Teachers participate in annual continuing education classes. Our teachers are loving, nurturing, and dedicated to the safety and well-being of each child.
