The Grace Christian Preschool spiritual and academic teaching philosophies are solidly rooted in those established by Grace Christian School, which was founded in 1981. We are licensed by the Ohio Department of Education and a member of the Association of Christian Schools International. Our preschool teachers are licensed by the Ohio Department of Education or have a Child Development Associate Credential (CDA). Head of School is Cindy Phillips. Preschool Director is Amber Segna.

Our Philosophy

It is our goal that children are encouraged to learn and grow by providing developmentally appropriate experiences where all children can succeed in a safe and nurturing environment. We offer a curriculum rooted in a God-centered Biblical world view. This view holds that the Bible is the inherent Word of God and God’s truth is the standard for all truth.

Core Values

Our educators believe all children:

  • Are made in the image of God (Genesis 1:26)
  • Are fearfully and wonderfully made (Psalm 139:14)
  • Are sinners in need of a Savior (Romans 3:23)
  • Have lives marked with a purpose (Jeremiah 29:11)
  • Are valued by God (Matthew 19:14)

Importance of Classroom Environment

Our educators understand the importance of the indoor and outdoor learning environments. They design a rich atmosphere which provides a variety of safe and reassuring stimuli for the different needs of each student. A wide variety of age-appropriate opportunities are provided to help move each child toward mastery of skills and concepts. Decisions about classroom resources and materials are planned and implemented with each child in mind, reflecting a biblical worldview.
