Grace United Learning Center is a non-profit facility designed to provide nurturing, high quality, safe and affordable childcare and preschool programs without regard to race, creed, religion or income. The Center staff work to ensure the physical, emotional, educational and developmental growth of the children in our care. We are a non-faith based center where the teachers deliver an array of excellent, comprehensive full-day and preschool programs to meet your needs. Center hours are 6:30 AM to 5:30 PM Monday through Friday.
The Center serves children ages 2 through 8 years, with a before and after school program during the school year as well as a Summer Camp. It is licensed to serve up to 38 students at any one time. Bus transportation is available for Taneytown Elementary School and Mother Seton school students. Our teachers are credentialed and we use the Maryland Model for School Readiness in addition to the Creative Curriculum and Maryland State Voluntary Curriculum to prepare the children for kindergarten. The Center currently participates in the Maryland EXCELS program and is Accredited by the Maryland State Department of Education.
God continues to bless Grace United Learning Center through the hard work and tender care of our dedicated staff, and the eager minds and smiling faces of our students.
The Learning Center accepts participants in the Purchase of Care/Child Care Subsidy Program. The students are served breakfast, a morning snack, a hot lunch and an afternoon snack. The daily hot lunch is prepared by the Country Kitchen staff and is transported to the Center by a team of volunteers from the church congregation. We plan a field trip to the Maryland Zoo each June as well as several other trips throughout the year; parents are encouraged to join us on these outings.
The Learning Center Support Committee welcomes the input, participation, and support of all Grace Church members interested in furthering the ministry of the Learning Center. The Center has provided an opportunity for community youth to perform community service hours required for high school graduation.
