In just one year, the Grace Place Academy pre-school has doubled in size and is now announcing that they are adding additional classes for ages 18 to 36 months. When you talk to any of the parents whose children have enjoyed the school over the last year, it’s easy to understand why they are growing so rapidly. “To say we are pleased with Grace Place is an understatement. Our daughter enjoys everyday and is learning at a rate that even we didn’t expect. The teachers and staff are top-notch and are people who are gifted with children. They provide a safe and loving environment in a Christian atmosphere. We couldn’t be happier,” said Scott and Ashley Vacca.
The mission of Grace Place Academy is to provide a high-quality early childhood Christian education for pre-schoolers; intentionally building strong foundations of faith by promoting spiritual, physical, social, and cognitive development with excellence in a safe and nurturing environment.
Director Monica Leonard explained, “Our pre-schoolers will experience a hands-on learning environment that will captivate and engage their curiosity and build lifetime learners. They have opportunities to participate in music, art, chapel, library, and computers.”
The pre-school is licensed by the Arkansas Department of Human Services and meets or exceeds all requirements for licensing standards. State vouchers are also accepted and Grace Place is also a Better Beginnings participant. Leonard added that after school care for Grace Place students is also now available, if needed.
“Grace Place Academy is the most supportive, enthusiastic, positive educational environment we have ever seen,” raved Linded and Rachael Hopper. “It has been truly transformative for our daughter and we are excited to see our son attend Grace Place this fall.”
