GSL's Preschool is a loving, lively center of activity where children learn by doing, sharing, and experiencing. Ask students who attend Preschool at Grace-St. Luke’s what they do all day, and they’ll likely say, “Play!” GSL’s Preschool is play-based, allowing students to learn as they explore the world around them. It's "play with a purpose," in which we incorporate activities through play that strengthen children's fundamental skill development, such as letter and number recognition, fine and gross motor skills, handwriting, science exploration, and much more! 

Guided by our Formative Five curriculum that emphasizes the importance of empathy, self-control, integrity, embracing diversity, and grit, our Preschool program helps launch children on their educational journey by creating kind and inquisitive lifelong learners. Mindfulness education also helps them learn to regulate their emotions and express feelings with consideration and respect. 

Finally, we also believe in the importance of outdoor learning. Preschoolers spend lots of time in our outdoor classroom, where they can investigate the natural world around them. 

Attached to the historic home known as Miss Lee’s after the original Preschool program founded there in 1924 (nearly 100 years ago!), GSL’s Preschool is nestled on the east end of the school’s campus, directly adjacent to our Anchor Center building. It features both a playground and outdoor classroom/garden in addition to nine classrooms and a maker space.

Come visit and see how we play and learn!
