Child Development Center

Grace Lutheran School offers classes from six weeks through high school. When you send your child to Grace Lutheran, don't let go of your child; grow with your child. Our teachers work closely with parents in a Christian family environment to encourage total growth - spiritual, academic, emotional, physical, and social.
