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.
To provide a loving, nurturing environment that will enhance each child’s self-esteem, independence and individuality.
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.
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.
COG is excited to welcome students and their families at open house on Friday, August 16 from 11:00 AM – 12:00 PM.
Then join us for our Opening Day Liturgy on Monday, August 19 at 8:30 in the Nave. We will begin the new school year with songs and prayers to bless our teachers, our students, and their families. We look forward to seeing everyone!
