Little Friends of Grace Christian Preschool



Lifting high the name of Jesus Christ, the mission of Little Friends of Grace is to provide a Christ-centered program which promotes the development of each child spiritually, mentally, physically, and socially.


Each child is uniquely created by God. It is the responsibility of the school to create a learning environment that will help all children develop a sense of self-worth and become the persons God intended them to be.
Children are happier when their boundaries are lovingly set. Little Friends of Grace admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, priviledges, programs, and activities.


The philosophy of the school is put into practice with educational and Christian instruction that is age appropriate. Materials are provided to give the children hands-on learning experiences. Typical materials are blocks, playdough, housekeeping center, science center, art center, reading center and more.
