Children of Grace

The Children of Grace Preschool, more commonly known as COG, is a program of Grace Episcopal Church in Gainesville, Ga., that serves children from ages 6 months to five years. Our academic year typically begins in late August and ends around the third week in May, and the school day runs from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m., Monday through Friday.

Our Mission

To provide a loving, nurturing environment that will enhance each child’s self-esteem, independence and individuality.

Our Philosophy

Our philosophy at Children of Grace is to provide quality care and education for children 6 months through 5 years of age within a loving environment. The overall belief is to prepare children for each school year by building on previous years. We strive to meet each child’s individual emotional, spiritual, physical and intellectual needs. Children of Grace is an outreach ministry to the community providing early childhood education for all children without regard to race, color, religion, sex, handicap, creed or national origin.

Parent Involvement

Our parents volunteer to serve on various parent committees and assist with the various events and fundraising programs of the school. The parent committees work closely with the director to help ensure the betterment of the program.


As a program of Grace Episcopal Church, COG is governed by the church’s leadership board, the Vestry. The Vestry provides for the physical needs of the preschool and oversees its budget. The Vestry delegates the day-to-day operation to the rector of Grace Church and to the director of COG. The director determines all policies and procedures in consultation with the rector and Vestry.

Trunk or Treat & The Varsity

Grace Church and COG invite your family to a Trunk or Treat on Wednesday, October 30 from 5:30 – 7:00 PM! Wear your Halloween costume, visit the creatively decorated trunks, and play a few games. Don’t forget to bring a bag to collect candy!

A Varsity food truck will be here until 6:30 to provide dinner. Food tickets should be purchased from the COG office no later than Friday, October 25. If you’d like to pay for your food tickets online,  choose “field trip” as payment type and include “trunk or treat” in the memo line. (Please note that dinner is optional—and no tickets are needed to simply come enjoy the fun & festivities.) The cost for dinner is $5 for kids 5th grade and under, $10 for adults and youth with one entree included, or $12 for adults and youth with two entrees. All meals come with your choice of fries or onion rings and a drink. “What’ll Ya Have?”
