Grace nursery school:

  • Provides the boys and girls with a happy, relaxed nursery school atmosphere where each child can grow and mature at his or her own individual rate of growth.
  • Provides the support needed for a happy transition from home life to the larger world of elementary school. At Grace, children have the opportunity to develop in many ways through a variety of activities. These activities include art, music, and free play to enhance creativity; playground equipment, large blocks, and wheel toys to develop motor control; language, story time, puzzles, show & tell, games, science, and numbers to develop intellectual stimulation. Trips, special programs and cooking experiences are important parts of the program. Periods of active play are alternated with quiet learning experiences. These experiences nurture the emotional, social, cognitive and physical growth of each individual thus focusing on the whole child. Our aim is to insure a positive first-school experience for all.
  • Opens mid-September and continues through May with vacations at Thanksgiving, two weeks in December and one week in the Spring (Easter).

Lunch Bunch Update for September
I am pleased to announce that in September, Grace will be offering a before school care program beginning at 8:30.  Children will be chaperoned by a Nursery School staff member as they read, color and play together until the start of the school day at 9:15.  The cost will be $5 per day.

Also beginning in September, the after school Lunch Bunch program will be extending its hours to 2:30.  All children who are potty trained are welcome to stay for this program on any day of the week.  The cost has been adjusted since I sent out registration packets this past February.  The cost will now be $17 per day.    

Any family who wishes to take advantage of both before and after school care on the same day, would only be charged $20 for that day.   If your child will be attending either program on a consistent basis, we will be happy to work something out financially for you.

The after school Lunch Bunch program will have a different look come September as well.    Our goal is to make this program an enrichment extension of the school day.  Planning will occur this summer to create fun theme days to be held throughout the year.  The children will have an opportunity to create, read, experiment and play together on a daily basis.  Pizza Fridays are also being planned at various points during the year too.  


TWO-YEAR OLDS PLAY GROUP 9:30 - 11:30
Two-Day Program: Wednesday and Friday OR Tuesday and Friday
Tuition: $110/month 9:30 - 11:30

One-Day Program: Tuesday or Wednesday
Tuition: $60/month

The purpose of the two-year-old program is to provide a social experience for this age child in a relaxed environment. It provides the two-year-old with the opportunity to be with other children the same age for two hours one or two mornings a week. The child becomes aware of sharing, socializing, and living outside the family. Children do not need to be toilet trained.
