About Grace Community School

When it comes to your children, you want no compromises. There are things you can settle on, but childcare should not be one of those things. Since 1986, Grace Community School has been offering the best childhood education that money can buy, for less than the competition! We accept children from infants through age 11 (for after school and summer camp), with full pre-k and kindergarten programs.

Grace Community is no babysitter. Our school days are filled with active, engaging, intensive learning; organized games, music instruction, and more. We are proof positive that a program can be academically advanced, developmentally appropriate, and fun at the same time. Bright children graduate from pre-k at Grace Community School reading at the fifth-grade level. Even average children are reading at the first-grade level, as proven by nationally-recognized standardized tests. This is because our phonics education program is second to none. At Grace Community School, children learn to read as young as three years of age. Students not only learn the letters, but more importantly the sound that goes with each letter, along with a clue word to help them remember. By breaking the alphabet down into smaller sections and providing individualized instruction, children learn quickly and progress through the Reading Circles at their own pace. Because the kids learn at their own pace, they are never pushed too fast or held back; the instruction is always right at the child’s individual level. The result: kids who read! The certificates and books the kids take home keep parents informed of their children’s progress, and the kids love them!

Grace Community School also has advanced math instruction along with a variety of certificates and levels to celebrate our student’s mathematical achievements. Karate, dance, and music classes are available, too! Most importantly, Grace Community School provides daily non-denominational Bible instruction and curriculum-integrated character development study – an uncompromisingly Christian education.

We have kindergarten, too! You can choose Grace Community’s top-notch learning program, which builds upon what your child has learned during pre-k, continues the fantastic Bible instruction, and helps your child to achieve ever-higher levels of academic and developmental success. Just think about how advanced your kindergartener will be after graduating from Grace Community’s pre-k and kindergarten programs. You can continue giving your child the education and care he or she deserves, including Grace Community’s all-important reading program. An uncompromising education shouldn’t be unaffordable. We understand how tough things are in this economy, and we want to help. Grace Community School has a variety of ways to help parents via our financial aid program, multi-child discounts, and referral program.

All this, and a whole lot more: free registration, free breakfast, lunch, snacks, and drinks, free after-school transport from some local public schools, free school newspapers, free weekly photo program, free yearbook, and free twice-annual musical programs. Isn’t all that free stuff wonderful? For that reason we often hear “That sounds too good to be true.” But you can see it for yourself! We invite you to call any of our nine beautiful facilities. We’d love to give you a tour so you can see firsthand how Grace Community School can offer the ultimate in early childhood education for less money than competing daycares. We look forward to serving you and your family!

Best of Cape Coral 2017 (and Naples!)

Our Golden Gate and Naples Park locations won the Education category in the Best of Naples Awards!

We Couldn’t Have Done it Without You!

Thank you, Southwest Florida — we’ve been voted Best of Cape Coral (again!) and the Best of Naples.

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.

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.
