What are Theme Weeks all about?
Grace Community is the place to be for creativity and fun! Every week is filled with something new. New games, new activities, new special events, parties, and even dress-up days! It's definitely not school as usual. We pride ourselves on having not only the most challenging and rewarding educational program of any childcare facility in SWFL, but we also are the most innovative. All of our activities combine developmental and educational goals with games and activities. It's learning without the boredom!
Our program takes advantage of children's natural desire for knowledge and information and combines it with their love for fun and engaging activities.
Grace Community School was first established in 1986. For more than 29 years Grace Community has been the leading childcare provider in Southwest Florida. Exceptional childcare and an emphasis on educational achievement at the preschool level has lead to the development of slogans such as "Our Preschoolers Can Read," and "College Can Begin At 2."
The College Can Begin At 2 Preschool Curriculum was developed in order to provide a fun, entertaining, and educationally rigorous preschool experience. Children are able to grow developmentally and educationally without becoming bored or unproductive. Our Curriculum combines fun and education with spectacular results!
