Welcome to Grace Preschool
Grace Preschool is a mission project of the Los Gatos United Methodist Church. We believe that it takes a whole community to raise a child and all children are equally treasured without regard to color, race, creed, religion or national origin.
Grace Preschool works in partnership with
Los Gatos United Methodist Church
LGUMC has chosen to play a vital role in helping to shape the child and the future by providing a safe, loving environment where preschoolers’ natural curiosity for learning can thrive and grow. We are dedicated to providing an engaging and stimulating hands-on experience for the children of Grace Preschool. In all activities, we emphasize the process of discovery.
The program’s objectives include enhanced ability to communicate, development of a positive self-image, development of social and physical skills, stimulation of intellectual curiosity, increased spiritual awareness, and time for good old fashion play!

We Foster Your Child's Connection to Faith
We celebrate all of the Christian holidays and our students learn about their significance.
On a more regular basis, once or twice per month, the children attend "Chapel". This is a small group time with Jonnye Cartmill, our Children's Ministry's lead. During Chapel time, we teach the children virtues like kindness, compassion, friendship and other positive qualities. We use this time to sing songs, read stories, or talk about one of the special holidays approaching. At snack time, the children will learn and recite a meal prayer of thanks, and recite daily.
