The GraceWorks Early Childcare Program is licensed by the Department of Early Education for Children (DEEC) to provide year-round care for a combined count of 53 children/day for our Toddler, Preschool and Pre-kindergarten programs.


The Pre-kindergarten Room is licensed for 20 children/day,  and has at least two  teachers.
The teachers are Rose R., Traci F. and Melissa D.

The Pre-Kindergarten classrooms use a thematic approach to the curriculum.  the function of GraceWorks' Pre-K program  is to prepare the children for a smooth transition from a preschool to a  regular school environment.  The teachers strive to prepare each child academically, socially and emotionally.  Teaching methods aim towards meeting each child's individual needs while maintaining a consistent standard of learning for the entire classroom.  In addition teachers work to maximize each child's self-esteem and personal development.  Math, science, phonics, writing skills, art, cooking and music are incorporated into lesson plans.  And above all, the children have fun!

The Pre-K curriculum follows guidelines approved by the Department of Early Education and Care (DEEC).

GraceWorks has a specific transition plan in place for new students who are getting acclimated to the Pre-K  routine, teachers and students.
