At Grace Learning Center, we have 9 classrooms that range in age from 6 weeks to 5 years. Each classroom in staffed by experienced and qualified teachers and under state mandated staff:child ratios. All classes have outside time each day (weather permitting) either on the playground (toddlers and up) or on a walk with the stroller (infants).

Crawlers and walkers in this classroom experience lots of time to explore and enjoy their newfound mobility! Teachers foster continued growth in gross motor skill as well as encouraging fine motor skill through self-feeding and other tasks.

Pre-K: 11 preschoolers ages 4 – 5 years old
The four-year-old program is a true Pre-K class that will prepare your child for entry into Kindergarten. They continue the Curiosity Corner curriculum and begin to learn more of the social skills they will need to thrive in a more structured and larger class environment. They still have lots of opportunity for free play and creativity too!
