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.

We’re the Best! (Actually, You Are!)

We’re the best! Grace Community School was just voted best of Cape Coral by the Cape Coral Daily Breeze (for the second year in a row), the Lehigh Acres Citizen, and the Charlotte Sun.

First of all: thank you! These “Best Of…” awards are based on newspaper reader polls, so we literally could not have won without you and your votes. You guys are great! We feel great, too. We love hearing people say that we’re the best, and we’ve heard this a lot since the first Grace Community School location was opened in 1986. In 2016, we will be celebrating our 30th anniversary, and being publicly recognized like this is wonderful. We are thrilled to have served this community and its parents and children for three decades now.

Grace Community School was designed to stand apart from the crowd, which we have done. We know there are dozens of daycares in Southwest Florida, and we’re glad you chose us! Even more importantly, we are happy that you trust us enough to educate and care for your children and grandchildren. Being a parent is an enormous responsibility, and choosing a school is no trivial decision. Rest assured that your kids are in good hands. Education is what we do. At Grace Community School, “Our Preschoolers Can Read” and “College Can Begin at Two!” aren’t just slogans. When we say that our preschoolers can read, we mean it. This is a claim no other Southwest Florida childcare center even makes, let alone fulfills. There is endless discussion in early childhood education circles about the need to increase daycare learning, No Child Left Behind, and early literacy. Preschool is a hot issue, even making it into the presidential campaign news. This is an important discussion, to be sure, but talking alone will not address these issues.

While others talk, we do.

We are Southwest Florida’s leader in early childhood education, with a proven track record of teaching kids to read, do math, and a whole lot more – a much more than the so-called free programs.

Recently a news story broke saying that daycare costs in 31 states exceed in-state college tuition. Pardon my saying, but that’s crazy Quality childcare shouldn’t cost an arm and a leg. Grace Community School’s low prices, introductory rates, scholarship program, and free food are very important for our parents. There are enough struggles, financial and otherwise, for parents without daycare costs taking an undue toll. Being the best means we promise to do all that we can to help this community in our area of expertise – it’s what we do.


All that being said, It’s nice to talk about us, but what we’d really like to do is focus on our students. It is our pleasure to see that our students are learning. Feedback is wonderful, but today let us celebrate our students’ achievements, not our own. The real stars of this story are your kids! They are learning so much! Nothing makes us happier than seeing all the Reader Achievers who grace each issue of The Whale’s Tale and our social media pages; and the reading books, and Reading and Math Circle certificates, going home. Grace Community School is more than a school, we’re a family, and that family is made up of the many, many students and their parents who come see us each and every school day.

So again: thank you for voting us “the best,” and especially thank you for your wonderful children. We look forward to serving the community of Southwest Florida for many years to come.
