GLC Preschool


The GLC Preschool

For 40 years the Grace Lutheran Church School has faithfully provided high-quality affordable Christian education for preschoolers and kindergartners. Our school has been the right choice for many families and we hope to be the right choice for you! We offer an environment for children to grow and develop spiritually, physically, socially, emotionally and intellectually.

GLC Preschool is a non-profit organization operated as a ministry of Grace Lutheran Church. It is open to any child 2-6 years of age, regardless of religious affiliation.

Our Programs

The GLC Preschool offers school year programs, summer school, and a.m. and p.m. extended care for children ages 2 – 6. We also are connected to Grace Children's Center (GCC) if your family is in need of daycare and full day care options. 

Early Bird Drop-Off
We know that many families have conflicting drop-off times with other children’s school schedules, so we offer an Early Bird Drop-Off option that may be helpful to you.  Please inform us if you will need this option for your child’s school days so that we can staff accordingly.  The price for this option is $5 per day for drop off @ 8:30 am (school begins @ 9:00 am). Options for an 8:00 am drop off are also available, please contact the director for more information.
