Pre-Kindergarten Class

Mrs. Torres' Class

Each child is unique – a special gift from God to be cared for, loved and nurtured. Children should grow and learn to have fun.

At Grace, children’s exploration is the essential component of our curriculum and considers the process of learning rather than the product. Learning takes places as the child touch, manipulate, and experiment with things and interact with people. The activities for children are developmentally appropriate, challenging and promote success for the child because they are geared to the child’s development stage.
