This year Grace is excited to introduce our new kindergarten prep program. We offer a program tailored to meet the specific needs of children preparing to enter kindergarten. We hand-selected a state-approved curriculum that is aligned with the standards used in the public school systems. It identifies all of the essential learning elements, including literacy and language development. Reading readiness, math, social studies, and science awareness. Also, we emphasize social and emotional readiness and character building. Our preschoolers entering school will meet and exceed the state's standards as measured in kindergarten.
