Grace Lutheran School is a non-profit private Christian school. Our goal is to offer young children a Christian environment in which to grow, learn, and
develop spiritually, physically, academically, and socially. Classes are small with a certified teacher and aide in each class. The classes offered are as follows:
2 Year Olds - Two Days
For children age 2 by August 31st, 2017

As a classroom environment is not conducive to diaper changing, we expect that a parent will change his or her child immediately before class begins. Please have your child wear pull-ups rather than diapers. We work on potty-training at school during this two-year old class.

Check out MORE options for your kids @ Grace Lutheran School!!
Many parents would like an extra option for their kiddos to spend more time at Grace Lutheran School…. And maybe have time to get a few errands done or meet a friend for coffee while their kids are in school!
We offer a LUNCH BUNCH option for preschoolers ages 3 and up. Your child can attend our LUNCH BUNCH from 11:30 am -1:00 pm for a $8 prepay or $9 drop-in fee. You provide the lunch – we provide the fun! Kids will eat and interact together, then spend the rest of the hour with stories, activities and more. LUNCH BUNCH fees need to be pre-paid or paid on the day of service for “drop in”.
All of our PK classes are designed to prepare your children for Kindergarten, but in this rapidly changing world, who doesn’t want their kids to have an extra boost of confidence, independence, and preparedness? KINDERGARTEN JUMPSTART is a great way to help your child be even more ready for the Kindergarten experience after leaving GLS. Our 4-hour Kindergarten Jumpstart offers more time each day to help your child explore and discover even more about Math, Reading, Science and the Arts.
We’ve designed this portion of our program with our PK-K Connection with the Highline School District and WA KIDS, in mind.
You choose the days whether 3, 4, or 5 that work best for your child, your family and your work schedule.
Many families need an extra hour or two for their children each day, whether they have a new baby at home, a parent who works nights and needs a few hours of quiet time to sleep or to help offset the hours of their work schedule. Grace Lutheran School would like to help fill that gap with a new option for an EXTENDED DAY. This multi-age option is for 3, 4 and 5 year olds and will be in a different classroom with a different teacher than their regular teacher. Time available from 11:30 am - 3:00 pm for our 3 year olds and 3-day PK classes that end at 11:30 am; from 1:00 -3:00 pm for our Kindergarten Jumpstart and Choice kids.
Students must preregister for this EXTENDED DAY option as there will be a limited number of spaces available. See fees and schedule for more information.
Questions? Not sure if this option would be a good fit for your child? Let us know – we’re excited about our program options and would love to help you find the perfect fit for your child at Grace Lutheran School!
