Grace Presbyterian Learning5

My child loves Grace day school. She has never had any complaints about her teachers or the curriculum. The teachers seem interested in my child's development, and the classes are small enough for individual attention for each child. My only complaint is that some of the parents are unfriendly and seem disinterested in getting to know each other. If the parents would connect more, we could share information and ideas that would help our children succeed even more at school.
The daycare/dayschool program at this school and the pre-school program are separate and vastly different. I removed my child from the daycare program and would not recommend it. I was bored reading the daily schedule, and my child was bored living it. Changing schools was a day and night difference in my child. I've heard that the preschool is run very differently and is a great program. The leadership at this school is weak. Many of the teachers are truly wonderful people, but some are misplaced. The staff is stretched thin, and some teachers spend a lot of time outside the classroom making copies, getting supplies and so on. Also, the school's playground is pebbles and sand, which makes shoes and clothes very dirty and also damages shoes. Also, you cannot drop off or pick up from 11-2 which is a problem when scheduling doctor appointments and so on. There are better full day programs around Plano at a similar price.
My daughter has been for 3 years and have had nothing but a positive experience every year. All the teachers are kind and caring. We were so lucky to stumble across such a great school. She is school ready and still has another half a year left.
I just started my 2 yr old this year, and I love it! She is in the toddler class with Miss Kris and Ms. Cami. I can't say enough good things about them, and it didn't take my daughter long to get comfortable going. Now she gets excited when she sees the church. They are very personable, and always inform me about her day when I pick her up. They also send sheets home as well. They really have a nice little schedule/routine. The director, and everyone that I have met at the school are really top-notch, very professional, and friendly. Returning parents have nothing but good things to say about the school, and the kids seem very happy there. One parent asked me how my daughter was doing, and when I said 'great!' She said, 'They just know when they're in a loving place.' I couldn't agree more.
