The 2017 school year is done, and with it our Pre-K and Kindergarten graduation programs!

Our theme this year was “Broadway” featuring medleys of classic showtunes and movie songs, and the children’s performances did not disappoint.

Why Did Grace Community School Build New Playgrounds at Every Location?

Look at that smile!

Hint: Your Child Will Love the Answer!

We’ve spent a lot of time and money over the past year renovating our playground areas and adding new playground equipment at each and every Grace Community School location. New playgrounds are expensive! Why did we do it? Take a look at the YouTube video above! I think it speaks for itself, but believe me when I say that seeing the joy on our students’ faces has made it all worth it. Your kids deserve outstanding play areas. Basically, we wanted playgrounds to match the quality of our educational programs!

Playground quote

These renovations have taken the better part of a year, but we are finally nearing completion. The last big playground piece was just completed at our Fort Myers location, and the kids are thrilled.

Safety first!

We could go on and on about the benefits of physical exercise and the importance of keeping kids moving, but it all boils down to this: we want our students to be happy. And you, our parents and grandparents, have made this possible with your support. These new playgrounds will give many years of enjoyment and education. We couldn’t have done it without you! Thank you!
