Grace Preschool, founded in 1969, is a part of the outreach ministry of Grace United Methodist Church in Auburn, Alabama.
While it is a part of the church program, the curriculum is not denominationally oriented; however, traditional Christian
teachings and activities are included. We strive to offer an environment that respects diverse religious traditions
and values. Our mission as one of the oldest preschools in Auburn is to be a service to the community by providing a comfortable, secure, and loving environment in
which children will learn and grow under the supervision of qualified Christian teachers.
Our program is designed with the "whole child" in mind. A thematic curriculum and related activities
are utilized, addressing the physical, social, emotional, and intellectual domains of early childhood education. "Hands-on"
learning experiences appropriate for the developmental levels of the students are preferred. We believe that learning
should be fun and that play is the "work" of childhood.
Each preschool class follows a daily schedule that includes both teacher-directed and student-directed activities.
The schedules are designed to include large group activities such as circle time, story time, free play (both inside and outside),
music, and games. Class sizes are kept manageable, allowing for small group and individual instruction.
Educational activities include:
These activities are designed to:
Enhance expressive and receptive language development
Introduce and reinforce new concepts
Develop critical thinking skills
Create a love of literature and learning
Promote readiness for kindergarten
Encourage recognition of developmentally appropriate concepts
Foster respect for others
Nuture creativity, discovery, and individuality
Grace Preschool is located at 915 E. Glenn Avenue in Auburn, Alabama.
