Academic Life


Get a step ahead and enroll your 3- or 4-year-old child in a GRACE preschool education program. Our hands-on, play-based approach ensures learning is both challenging and child-centered in an environment focused on faith-filled activities and development.

Development and Supportive Environment

Our preschool education program focuses on preparation for kindergarten and beyond through exploration, social interaction and play – the right balance to develop, support and challenge your child. Our classrooms are fun and adventurous, where life skills and kindergarten preparation are taught through play. Children are encouraged to explore and discover their surroundings. They learn how to play with others, understand how things work, problem solve and use their imagination.

Faith-Based Benefits

Your child will learn and grow in a faith-based environment where Christian values are promoted and character development is part of every day activity. Our preschool program introduces Jesus’ role by incorporating the love of God into our daily activities. Your child will learn from teachers and mentors who are loving, nurturing and faith-centered.

Readiness Criteria

Our goal is to have your child make a smooth and successful transition into the preschool environment at our schools. Our enthusiastic teachers are eager to nurture and foster your child’s development and faith. Every child is unique in their readiness for preschool. Parents are encouraged to reach out to the school principal to discuss any questions concerning their child’s readiness. Please note that there are a few requirements to enter preschool:

  • Child must be the respective class age by September 1 of the enrollment year
  • Child is able to take responsibility for own needs (i.e. using the bathroom, blowing nose, dressing for outside, changing clothes)
  • Child must be potty trained and able to independently use the toilet; Pull-Ups are not allowed as schools are not licensed for diaper changing
  • Child must have age-appropriate immunizations as set forth by the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction

Flexible Schedules, Affordable Options

GRACE schools shape programs to the needs of our parents. Both morning and afternoon preschool programs and multi-day combinations are available. Contact your school of choice for details concerning program options. Many GRACE schools also offer multiple options for Before and After School Care. We know you live a busy life and we want to help by ensuring your child is safe and in a family-like environment when not at home.

Selecting a GRACE preschool education program is a great financial decision, as well. GRACE preschool program rates are often less than many day care options. Plus, your child will grow in an environment focused on faith and development.
