Welcome to Grace Children’s Learning Center

Welcome everyone! We’re looking forward to a great School year!

GCLC, including the preschool office, will be closed on Friday, August 11 while the floors are being waxed. The school office will reopen on Monday, August 14 at 9:00 am. 


We are an integral ministry of Grace United Methodist Church. Active learning, social, physical, and spiritual growths are the core goals of our programs. Our children flourish in our safe and nurturing environment with “hands on” activities, specialty programs, and a developmentally appropriate curriculum. Come check us out!
