Preschool

Your child’s preschool experience should be one that encourages a love of learning.  God designated you as your child’s first teacher.  We would love to partner with you as your child begins their formal schooling.

Fireflies: Our Three Year-Olds

Our preschool begins with our youngest students in our Firefly program.  Your three year-old may be enrolled on or after their third birthday, anytime during our school year.  This class has an emphasis on social/emotional learning while developing early literacy and math skills, as well as fine and large motor skills.  All learning is shared within a Biblical point-of-view.  Weekly Bible lessons tie into our weekly Chapel on Fridays.

All teachers meet or exceed education and certification standards for preschool.

VPK

GraceWay participates in the Florida Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten (VPK) program.  In this program, the State of Florida pays student tuition assuming that attendance requirements have been met.

Our VPK students pick up where the Fireflies left off.  Additional emphasis is on early literacy, especially phonemic awareness, so that your child is ready to read in Kindergarten. Students who are already reading will be encouraged to continue developing those skills.

Our curriculum is grounded in biblical truths that are woven throughout your child’s school day.  VPK students experience a weekly Bible lesson as well as Spanish.  Their Bible lesson ties into our weekly Chapel message, enabling students to participate in Chapel.  Additionally, every three weeks students visit Grace Presbyterian’s on-site library where they enjoy selecting their own book to check out and share with their friends in the classroom.

All teachers meet or exceed required education and certification standards for VPK.
