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 55 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
  • Alphabet
  • 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.
