GRACE EARLY CHILDHOOD
Two's Club Launched in 2008 as a response to the overwhelming number of requests from within the
Massapequa community. Our curriculum focuses on learning through play and discovery. Exposure to literature, art
and music will enable your child to develop early reading and writing skills. Self-expression, socialization and
communication are key areas targeted for success in our young students. Part time and full day classes are available.
Nursery and Pre-K Both half and full day classes are offered. Teachers and assistants provide the individualized attention needed in the first challenging years of schooling. Each class has enrichment centers with hands-on activities. Children are invited to explore the world through painting and creative play. Reading and math readiness skills are emphasized and children have easy access to an array of books, puzzles, in-story corners as well as counting tools and numerous math games. Enriched programs include art, music, Spanish, computer, reading and writing readiness. Sign language and French are also offered. We recognize individuality and strive to enhance each child's unique abilities. Our program is enhanced with guest speakers, specialty programs and field trips throughout the school year. In addition, the Grace campus offers an outdoor playground, athletic field and indoor gym.
Students are exposed to the Spanish and Latino cultures. Engaging music, children's books, visual aids and games provide opportunities for students to practice speaking the language and understand the culture in a fun way. Students are encouraged to speak with the teacher and each other as they learn words and phrases. Units of study include numbers, colors, family members, weather, animals and foods. The most important objective at this level is to develop an enjoyment of speaking and a desire to learn more.
