Diapering & Potty Training

Potty Training is provided at Grace Preschool! We understand that each child develops at their own pace and are here to help support your family during this transition. Grace Preschool is happy to provide diapering services for those little ones who are not quite ready for independent pottying. The cost is an additional $25 a month* until the time your child is able to stay dryat school on their own. If you would like, our trained staff will work with you and your child to help accomplish this goal. Please speak to your teacher for more details and to plan for your child's individual needs.
*Diaper sizes 1-6 are available and provided by Grace Preschool.

Our goal for the 3 year old class is to develop an increased confidence in their ability to do things for themselves and others. At this age, children also develop a great curiosity for the magic power of written and spoken language. Grace provides a positive interactive experience fostering these progressing academic skills while considering the child's individual creative expressions. Guided by the children's interests, we inevitably produce a platform for further discovery and exploration extensions on a wide variety of topics. This particular program has activities designed to further challenge cognitive skills and encourage children to master tasks which are developmentally appropriate for their physical and social development.
*This program is designed for children who WILL NOT be entering kindergarten next year.
