Our Mission & History
Grace Preschool is a non-profit, non-denominational, Christian school for children from 2 1/2 years old through five years of age. The mission of Grace Preschool is to provide children and their families with a quality educational experience in a safe, nurturing, faith-based environment. The goals of Grace Preschool are to help children develop a positive self-image and to gain social, emotional, intellectual, physical and spiritual growth through age-appropriate activities. The positive experiences students have at Grace Preschool will prepare them for kindergarten and set the stage for future years of schooling.
Grace Preschool opened its doors in 1977. The desire was to offer a faith based preschool to families in the Ripon community originally came from members of the congregation here at Grace Evangelical Lutheran Church. The community Preschool is housed in the Grace Church building; however, the preschool has its own Board of Directors and teaches non-denominational Christian values. We have been thriving for more than 40 years!
