Early Childhood Education at Grace
Preschool and Prekindergarten
Honoring Childhood, Empowering Children
Our early childhood program is dedicated to providing a warm, nurturing environment where children’s ideas and abilities are developed through engaging, authentic learning experiences. An environment rich in play, discovery, research, and collaboration promotes high-level thinking skills, problem-solving capabilities, enhanced language development, and empathy. With an average class size of 13 students, our highly trained teachers are attuned to each child’s growth and development.
Reggio-inspired Learning in a Joyful Environment
Our pedagogical approach toward our youngest students is inspired by the Reggio Emilia philosophy. Our child-centered program is guided by a few core principles:
With these principles as our guideposts, our Preschool and Prekindergarten programs cultivate important social and emotional skills alongside creative and critical thinking. Pre-literacy and numeracy skills are interwoven into authentic, carefully scaffolded learning experiences. Our intentional, emergent curriculum builds self-confidence and a true love of learning.
