Extends the children's warm world of home and lead them into the discovery of the world beyond home. The children will have experiences in sharing, language development, creative expression (art), movement, music, and God's word. Activities used will be at the developmental stage of each child and will use a variety of the child's senses in helping them to discover God's world around them. The program will assist in building strong relationships between the home, the child, and the school, and establish the groundwork for the child's formal learning.

Will build on the above, and also provide a wide variety of experiences for children in social, emotional, and intellectual areas of growth, as well as opportunities for development of large and fine motor skills. There will be a balance of teacher-directed, as well as student-choice activities during the structure of the day. The children will also have the opportunity to become acquainted with Bible stories and songs and learn of Jesus as their friend and Savior. The children will not be pressured but will be encouraged to grow from their own developmental stage to new stages of readiness in all areas. After completing this session, a child could, upon recommendation, based on readiness, go directly to Kindergarten.

How We Help

We highly value Christ-centered education and the role it plays in equipping the next generation of Christian leaders. As such we strive to set our educational fees at a level that makes Christian education accessible to every family that would like to provide that gift to their children. It is an investment, but at the end of the day, we believe it is 100% worth every penny. Click below to find out more about our competitive rates.

Grace is a wonderful place for your child to learn and grow. Our programs are highly regarded in the community and the limited space generally fills very quickly. General information can be found in the brochure below. We recommend you call today to find out more and schedule a personal visit with Mrs. Lockman, the program director and lead teacher.


Your Gateway to Learning

The enrollment process begins by contacting the school office to find out program availability. New families are encouraged to set up a meeting with Mrs. Lockman to learn more about the program. The next step involves filling out the registration form and returning it to the school office with a $50 non-refundable registration fee. After that, Grace will be in contact with you to provide any additional required paperwork. Welcome to the family!


Choosing a school for your child is a big decision, one that will affect your family for years to come. The best way to tackle this decision is by visiting our campus to see if it's right for your child and your family. On your private tour, we will show you our campus and, most importantly, answer your questions about private, Christian education.
