Can’t Stop the Feeling! Song and Dance Week

Our Grace Community School Song and Dance Week Performances!

This summer we continued our tradition of learning a special song and dance routine for Song and Dance Week, and the kids outdid themselves!

We chose a song most of the kids were familiar with, “Can’t Stop the Feeling,” from the Trolls movie. We worked hard every day during the week practicing our dance moves and recorded our videos on Friday. Here are the results โ€” thanks for watching!

Grace Community School testimonials

You Are Our Community

We’ve been here more than 30 years in Southwest Florida. In that time we have helped thousands of students in our nine Grace Community School locations. Each one of these special kids has been part of our community, with parents, grandparents, and relatives. Sometimes we are blessed enough to hear how the Grace Community School experience has impacted our families. We love hearing from our parents and grandparents!

Here’s what a few of them had to say.

What Does the Community Say?

“When my daughter arrived she was loved and welcomed. I had started potty training and she was doing ok. As she started going to Grace, slowly the days grew where she would come home with the same clothes until now it’s been amount 3 months since I’ve brought pampers and my daughter isn’t even 3 years old! She also has come home with a bigger vocabulary, an urgency to read and is counting! They have opened her up and allowed her to feel like she has even more family and that is a good feeling for a mother like myself.โ€ – Natalia L.

Since 1986

Grace Community School has been Southwest Florida’s leader in early childhood education since our first location opened in 1986.

Is Grace Community School right for your child?

Most advice about choosing the best daycare center focuses on credentials, accreditation, and fancy toys. These things are not enough! In the real world, results are king. Education is crucial, particularly in the subjects of reading and mathematics. Grace Community School students learn to read as preschoolers, something unheard of in other centers. Grace Community School preschool students are literate, and our kindergarten students graduate reading multiple grade levels ahead of their public school counterparts.

Child reader
Our students read!

Our phonics program, along with our math instruction, makes a tremendous difference in the lives of children. Reading and math instruction at a young age is vital to success even much later in life.

There are lots of “freebies” at Grace Community School, but the educational benefits alone make

Some things, like a great education, are too good to keep to yourself! Referring a family to Grace Community School is a tremendous way to do yourself and someone else a favor. Let your associates know that along with our low introductory rates and no registration fee, there is no better time to get on board with Grace Community School. And you can earn $100 for referring a student to our school!

It has been our privilege here at Grace Community School to serve the Southwest Florida community for more than thirty years. Again, THANK YOU for the opportunity to serve the Southwest Florida community.
