Grace United Methodist Preschool

Our Purpose

Our desire is to provide a safe, loving Christian environment for the children of our community and create a learning environment appropriate to each child's stage of development which will help them grow spiritually, socially, intellectually, physically, and emotionally. Our goal is to serve the people of our community by strengthening the children and their families. 

Our Teachers

Linda Screeton is our Pre-K and Wee-Ones teacher. Mrs. Screeton and her husband Terry have three children and live in Rochester. She is a member of Olive Branch Church of God. Mrs. Screeton is a Ball State University graduate.

LeaAnn Sroufe is our teaching assistant for all classes. Mrs. Sroufe and her husband Eric have two daugters and live in Macy. She attends Grace Church.


Our curriculum is an accredited Christian based program created by "A Beaka Book", a company that has created home school programs for the pre-school age through 12th grade. Their programs are committed to developing leaders by integrating a Biblical world and life view through a curriculum that meets and exceeds national and state standards. The main areas covered in our curriculum include language arts, math/science, fine motor skills, gross motor skills, and basic computer skills. 

Transportation Guidelines

Drop-off and pick up is at the alley door on the far west side of Grace Church. Please line up in your cars in the new parking lot in the back of Grace Church and wait until the teachers come out to get your child. For your child's safety, please do not let your child out of the car until you are directly beside our door, with no cars pulling away in front of you; or a teacher is helping your child out of the car.
