About the Preschool

Mission Statement

As an outreach of Grace Episcopal Church, the Children of Grace Preschool’s mission is to provide a loving, nurturing environment that will enhance each child’s self esteem, independence and individuality.

Philosophy

Our philosophy at Children of Grace is to provide quality care and education for children 6 months through 5 years of age within a loving environment. The overall belief is to prepare children for each school year by building on previous years. We strive to meet each child’s individual emotional, spiritual, physical and intellectual needs. Children of Grace is an outreach ministry to the community providing early childhood education for all children without regard to race, color, religion, sex, handicap, creed or national origin.

COG Governance

COG is a program of Grace Episcopal Church and is governed by the church’s leadership board, the Vestry. The Vestry provides for the physical needs of the preschool and oversees its budget. The Vestry delegates the day-to-day operation to the rector of Grace Church and to the director of COG. The director determines all policies and procedures in consultation with the rector and Vestry.

COG Parent Committees

COG has parent committees, made up of volunteer parents who help with the various events and fundraising programs of the school. The parent committees work closely with the director to help ensure the betterment of the program.
