My name is Terri Murphy, and I am excited to be the Director of Admissions at Grace Preschool. I have been a part of this special community for over 20 years. My time at Grace started as a parent, and I immediately fell in love with this little school. As my children got older and moved on from Grace, I knew I could not leave. I taught in the Threes for several years before becoming a kindergarten teacher. After a wonderful career in the classroom, being the Director of Admissions allows me to stay connected to this place I love. I have the privilege of welcoming new families to our school. I look forward to going through this process with you.
Come Grow With Us!
Thank you for your interest in Grace Preschool!
The Admissions Process
We would love to welcome your family to our community, but we understand that you need to feel comfortable and certain that Grace is the right place for you.
Applying online is the first step. This adds you to our online platform, ProCare.
Once that happens, you can expect a phone call from Terri, who can answer your questions and schedule your in-person tour.
Applications are accepted for children of any faith, race, or ethnic origin. Through sound educational practices, we try to ensure that our school and classes are composed of children with different cultural backgrounds, abilities, personalities, and genders. Applications are considered on a first-come, first-served basis. Priority is given to current Grace Preschool children, children whose families are Grace United Methodist Church members, and families who have had a prior affiliation with our school through December 15th. Applications for the following school year are available online. Letters of acceptance are sent at the beginning of February. If we do not have an available spot for a child, his or her name will automatically be placed on a waitlist for the following year. A non-refundable deposit of $300 is required at the time of enrollment and is applied towards tuition.
