Classroom Ages

Grace United Methodist Preschool is an  early childhood education program licensed by the State of Tennessee, that offers 9:00am-2:00pm preschool programming for children  6-weeks of age through Pre-Kindergarten.  We also offer an Extended Care option from 6:30 am - 5:45 pm.

Infant Classroom:

Children 6-weeks to approximately 12-15 months of age.  When a baby’s young toddler developmental milestones are achieved, a transition to the toddler classroom is planned.

 Toddler Classroom:

Children approximately 15 months of age through age 2 years. The children will remain with their toddler classmates for the full school year. This is the same birthday group of peers that will later graduate from preschool together.

 Two-year-Old Classrooms:

Children entering the Two-year-old classroom are age 2-years by August 15th of the new school year. The children remain with their classmates for the full school year. This is the same birthday group of peers that will later graduate preschool together.

 Three-year-old classrooms:

Children entering the Three-year-old classroom are age 3-years by August 15th of the new school year. The children remain with their classmates for the full school year. This is the same birthday group of peers that will later graduate preschool together. Children entering the 3-year-old classroom must be potty trained upon starting this class.

 PreK (4 & 5 year old) classrooms:

Children entering PreK are age 4-years by August 15th of the new school year. The children remain with their classmates for the full school year. This is the same birthday group of peers that will graduate preschool together.

Annual Registration

Registration for the next school year will occur in the springtime. Current Grace UMC Preschool students will register first and their siblings (pending availability). Any remaining openings are then offered to Grace United Methodist Church members and other families on the waiting list. Classes are filled annually through the registration process on a ‘first come-first serve basis.

 Extended Care

Extended care is a smaller portion of the preschool day. About 1/3 of the student body participate in these additional care hours. Extended Care opens at 6:30am and is closed by 5:45pm. A separate enrollment is required for this program, there is limited availability and it is not a drop-in option.
