Grace Lutheran Church Nursery School
At Grace, we believe your child’s first exposure to school should be a positive experience. We’ve been serving the communities of Broomall, Havertown, and Newtown Square for more than 50 years!
We only employ certified teachers, and we have a small student/teacher ratio. Families love that we’re conveniently located near the Blue Route, and that we offer morning sessions 2, 3, 4, or 5 days a week.
Our classes accommodate children ages 2 1/2 to 5, and there’s an aide in every classroom. Individual parent-teacher conferences help you stay in touch with your child’s progress in the classroom.
Our curriculum includes:
- Social development
- Introduction of colors and shapes
- Number concepts
- Seasonal craft activities
- Music program
In the pre-kindergarten year, we also offer:
- Readiness program for pre-reading
- Math & science concepts
- Small motor development
- Christmas pageant
- We work closely with local schools to ensure that your child is ready to make the transition to kindergarten.
We offer morning sessions from 9:00 – 11:30 AM, with a supervised lunch hour available from 11:30 AM – 12:30 PM. Choose to attend 2, 3, 4, or 5 days per week.

Marple Library at School Each Month
Miss Andie from Marple Public Library has been visiting our classrooms monthly : reading us age-appropriate stories, singing songs with us and doing crafts in addition to providing us with the paperwork to get our very own library cards!!
In May, Miss Andie from Marple Public Library read us a couple books about spring birds then the four-year-olds made Birds nest’s and our younger children put circles on pictures of birds. It was an arts and crafts activity following Miss Andie’s presentation of library books about spring birds.
The Marple children’s librarian Miss Andi visited both of our classes this past Friday, October 27th. She comes monthly with seasonal- appropriate books and does a fun craft with all the children during her visit.
