Gift of Grace, a Microschool concept, includes children ages 4 - 6 years of age (PreK-Kindergarten) in a small multi-age group. Also referred to as a "children's house" ~ a calming and respectful place that belongs to the children in scale, proportion, flow, comfort, safety, and inspiration. It is a hands-on, interactive, sensorial environment. It is a place of "grace and beauty".
It is here that the seeds of literacy, numeracy, care of self, others and the environment are sown. Both the practical and wondrous are offered in response to a child's innate striving toward independence, toward the desire and ability to "do it for myself."
Children engage in meaningful, real-world projects that cover core academic components while simultaneously developing other important skills such as empathy, inquiry, creativity, critical thinking, and problem-solving abilities. Through these experiences, children gain respect for and knowledge of themselves, others, and the natural world. Children's involvement and immersion in the curriculum promotes a deep understanding of subjects and leads to a passion for learning. There are many dimensions to Gift of Grace's education that makes it successful.
A few key components of our approach include:
MASTERY OF ACADEMIC SKILLS
ADVENTURE EDUCATION (NATURE-BASED)
CHRISTIAN FOUNDATIONAL TRUTHS
"For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith - and this is not from yourselves, it is the Gift of God."
