“At the core of learning in the preschool environment is love. Serving here at Grace Baptist offers the perfect place to teach small children in a loving way. So much is new to a preschool child, that teaching them is like offering a child an opportunity to make a new discovery every day. The staff here at Building Blocks of Grace is wonderful to work with. Each one brings a sweet spirit of love to her classroom. Their love for the Lord shows in every little detail of their day.”
