Educational Philosophy

Grace Children’s Center believes every child is a uniquely created by God with gifts, talents, and abilities. Our curriculum is emergent and play-based, allowing each child to discover their own passions.  We do this by:

  • Providing an environment that supports the growth of the whole child in developmentally appropriate ways.
  • Helping children to experience and learn about God’s love through Jesus Christ.
  • Encouraging children to acquire self-esteem, concern for others, a sense of community and a spirit of sharing.
  • Fostering creativity, exploration, self-discipline and a love of learning.
  • Partnering with parents, the child’s first teacher, in guiding healthy development.
