The purpose of Grace Nursery School:

  • Provides 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 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).

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.

Early Drop Off & Extended Day

Grace Nursery School provides early drop off and extended day options.  Early drop off is from 8:30-9:15 am, and children will be supervised by a Nursery School staff member.  The cost per day is $5.

Our extended day program begins at 12:00 pm and ends at  2:30 pm.  Children are supervised by a Nursery School staff member and should pack a lunch.  The cost per day is $17.  Pizza will be offered on Fridays, and students need to pack a snack and drink.

For any family wishing to take advantage of both early drop off and extended day the cost per day is $20.   

Our goal is to make this program an enrichment extension of the school day.  The children will have an opportunity to create, read, experiment and play together on a daily basis.
