I've had 2 children at this school for 2 years now. I came from a different school that I didn't like because of the young staff that I noticed just sat around not really doing much. Grace Christian is the exact opposite. All the staff is always working. I never see them slacking. If they're not in the room with the kids they are cleaning something. I interviewed 10 centers in the area before I chose this one. It's nice and bright, Set up just like a school, very clean, very friendly and personable staff. I love that they implemented prayer in their projects. I'm seriously going to miss this school for my older child... But I will still be there for my other child which I'm so happy about. I honestly feel blessed to have found this school. My kids teachers feel like family to me. The person that wrote a review above said That they repeat projects and that's not completely true. I would say some have been the same as the year before but there was also many new things they brought in this year. Doesn't every school repeat some of the same work? Isn't repetition good for our kids to remember the lesson?? I dont know I just really like this school. I'm very happy with it.
Very shady things go on at Grace. They put on a nice front but if you take a closer look they have cheap broken toys around the center. Their staff is also very gossipy and unfriendly, sometimes even cold. I pulled my child out and we have since started at a new preschool (WHICH WE LOVE) I didn't realize how much we were missing out on. The children don't even do real art projects there they are made to sit and do the same projects over and over year after year. The owner is never there any she is onlly interested in putting the maximum amount of children in each room, leaving the children crammed into rooms. The rooms were also out of ratio a lot when i would pick up my child. Especially the preschool and toddler room.
We moved our son to this center in last year. He was in a different child care center which had changed directors and we were not happy with the changes. I was totally impressed with Grace Christian when I did my walk through. It is set up just like a school. They have a great gym for indoor play, and the kids have a daily curriculum. My son has learned alot since being there. They do time outs for dicipline, which works out great to get that reinforcement at school. His teacher is great! The only con I have, it they workers do not seem to be too personable with the parents. I have never met Rita the owner, my son gets dropped of later in the am by my husband and she is gone by the time I pick him up. You ocassionaly get a ""hello"" from the person at the front desk, and when I call, they dont know who my son is and what class he is in. They are always asking, ""What room is your child in"". I wouldn't expect every teacher in every class to know me or greet me, but it would be nice for the directors and assistant directors to be a little more personable with the parents. And when I pick him up in the afternoon, for the afternoon (fill in) caregivers to associate a little more with the parents. Besides reading it on the report card, it would be nice to hear a little about their day. When I get there at the end of the day,(about 515 they close at 6) the fill in caregivers are always just sitting there. I hardly ever see them interacting or playing with the kids. All in all, I am happy with the center, he has excelled much more here than at the other center he was in. I love his head teacher and he seems happy. So that is what matters. They just need to be a bit more personable with the parents.
I highly recommend this school to any and all parents. My daughter has attended this school since she was 18 months. She is now four. The teachers do an excellent job working with the children. If you ever have a question or concern it is immediately answered and taken care of. I have never experienced any staff being unprofessional as it relates to other parents, staff or children. Every classroom is monitored by video from the office. You are more than welcome to come into the building at any time to enter your child?s classroom or observe your child in the class room on video. The facility is locked you can only enter the building by using an access code or by being buzzed in. If you are buzzed in you are first observed through video to insure that you are allowed in the building. Overall this is a great Christian school. I keep saying school because it is more than a day care.
I highly recommend Grace Christian Learning Center. I have two boys attending there. My youngest is in the toddler room and my oldest son has attended all of the classrooms: infant room, toddler room, pre-k etc, and each of the head teachers are magnificent; caring, genuine and honestly concerned about the well being of the child.
I have a child who has always needed special attention in each of his classes. The caregivers provided praise, empowerment and that special love for him when he needed it. The owner, Rita, knows each and every parent and their children and she always goes above and beyond for the children. She holds fundraisers for needy families, provides for the homeless, organizes holiday sing along shows, etc and she talks to the parents everyday. She makes sure problems and concerns are handled and taken care of. She only has the best interests in mind for the kids.
The day is structured, free play, circle time, creative time, and learning all through out the day with fun activities, singing, projects and games. There are daily lesson plans daily parent report cards, weekly plans, monthly themes, and various parties such as: bicycle parade day, harvest party, holiday parties, birthday parties, beach party, pajama day, costume day, plus so many more.
The environment is very cheerful and upbeat. I have seen quite a few daycares within the last year (for my business) not because I want to change and honestly I feel 100% confident and grateful that my kids are getting the best learning day care experience at Grace Christian.
GRACE CHRISTIAN IS SUCH A WONDERFUL, LOVING PLACE FOR CHILDREN. THE STAFF ARE INCREDIBLE AND VERY LOVING. I HIGHLY SUGGEST YOU VISIT GRACE CHRISTIAN IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR AN EXCELLENT CHILD CARE CENTER.
Grace christain learning center is the place for child care. I would highly recomend checking out the school. It is my favorite day care center!!!
Childcare is hard to find...........Grace Christian is always full because the caregivers love the children and the leadership is one of a kind. I trust Rita and her staff with all of my children
Grace christian learning center is a wonderfull environment for children. The care givers and rita are wonderfull people. I would recomend this school to anyone.
I have seen/heard the workers bad mouth parents to other workers on various occasions. Makes you feel like they are talking about you too!
Caregivers have picked up babies that could sit or stand by their arms.
I have had my childs assigned caregiver leave for the day while i was in the room to pick up my child and not even acknowledge me.
The room set up is much better than other daycares.
