Walking down the hallways of Grace Preschool, you may find students participating in an imaginative yoga class, getting their hands messy in a sandy sensory experience, reading quietly with one of their teachers in a cozy book corner, singing and dancing with instruments in music class, running, climbing, sliding and swinging with friends on the playground, riding around in our enclosed courtyard, practicing fine motor skills with crayons and pincer tools, creating crafts and gifts for loved ones, or taking a neighborhood stroll in our class sized buggies.
Our twos curriculum takes a developmental approach that sees our youngest students as intrinsic and inquisitive learners, capable of developing through hands-on experiences in a loving, child-centered, developmentally-appropriate environment. Our teachers are highly skilled individuals that not only love and care for their students but also value the connections with their school families as well.
Family participation is highly encouraged, and you will commonly find parents/guardians surprising a teacher with a decorated door, joining the class in holiday-themed scavenger hunts, participating in class parties, celebrating students on their special birthdays, or meeting friends on the playground for a weekend playdate. We work closely with families to create a caring team approach for the care of our learners through our online app- Procare, as well as through daily communication and conferences.
Above all else at Grace, we love our students. Social-emotional learning is at the heart of what we provide- even to our smallest learners. Everyone in our school is involved in the development and well-being of our students, and we truly believe in the “It takes a village…” mentality.
