Our Beliefs



Every child is a precious individual, worthy of unconditional love and respect.



Children recognize their potential when they are offered opportunities for spiritual, social, emotional, physical, and intellectual growth in a safe and loving environment.



It is important to support the family, as a whole, by minimizing the challenges so many parents encounter as they attempt to balance work and family responsibilities.



Communication among caregivers, parents, and children is an important foundation for trusting and growing relationships.

Our History

We are a nonprofit childcare center and preschool affiliated with Grace United Methodist Church, created to provide a unique service to our community-that of providing nurturing care and early childhood education in a Christian setting.

In 1992, Grace Christian Child Care was created in response to the needs of working families in the Hummelstown/Hershey community who were seeking high quality, reliable child care in a family-centered, loving Christian environment. In 2009 -- 17 years later -- Grace Christian Preschool was established to provide another facet of early education services at Grace, offering half-day classes for children needing socialization but not full-time care.
