Day in the Life

General School Mission

Grace Christian Preschool, a ministry of Grace Bible Chapel, was started to have a great spiritual impact on the lives of the young families of the congregation and as an outreach to our community.

Our foremost concern is for the spiritual development of our young people and we desire to assist parents to this end. We recognize the importance of balanced growth; therefore, we attempt to provide an atmosphere conducive to the spiritual, physical, social, emotional, and cognitive development of each child.
