PK-3 Class

     In this class we introduce many concepts such as letters, numbers, shapes, days of the week, months of the year, weather, colors, animals, and a variety of other subjects. We introduce the Zoo-phonics system which is a  kinesthetic, multi-modal approach to learning all aspects of language arts. This is further reinforced in the 4-year-old class. 
     One of the goals is for the children to adapt and thrive in a learning environment with new people and new surroundings. We help children to love learning and engage with the subjects they are learning about in a variety of hands-on, interactive ways. As a Christian preschool, we teach all subjects through a Biblical worldview. We also introduce topics such as: Creation and a Creator God, the life of Jesus, Bible stories, and much more. 

Meet the Staff

Mrs. Debbie Cross – Teacher
Mrs. Cross has taught young children for over 18 years.  She has been with Grace Academy Preschool since we opened our doors in 2013. Her artistic flare is evident throughout every facet of her classroom. She loves to provide hands-on, interactive opportunities for the children as they learn about the various subjects.  Each child know that she loves and cares about them, which is why the children are so comfortable around her and adapt quickly to her classroom. When children leave he classroom, they have the beginnings of solid foundations in a variety of areas that not only prepare them for the 4 year old class, but also have an impact at home as well.
