Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"The purpose of Grace Nursery School (GNS) is to provide a quality preschool experience within a secure, nurturing, relaxed yet stimulating Christian environment. Our ''learning through play'' curriculum is carefully planned to meet the social, emotional, physical and intellectual needs of young children, while promoting the development of a positive self-concept and preparing children for future school experiences. Grace Nursery School is an integral part of the outreach of Grace Lutheran Church, striving to provide a ministry of love to children, support to parents, and service to the community.
