Open House at Amazing Grace Early Learning Center

Posted on Wednesday, May 1, 2019 at 1:42 am

The members of Amazing Grace Lutheran Church in Oxford had a dream of serving their community. One of the needs they discovered was for quality, Christ-centered child care. Out of that dream and with the donations of church members, Amazing Grace Early Learning Center opened in September of 2018. Our sparkling new facility is located at CR 472 in Oxford (near Promise Hospital). It was specifically designed for the needs of young children for movement and brain development. A favorite feature is our playground which incorporates sand play, climbing, vehicles, a playhouse, water play and God’s creation – with beautiful plants and even birdhouses!
We serve children age 6 weeks through VPK (4 year old preschool) – including those who receive assistance from the Early Learning Coalition of the Nature Coast. We are currently full with the littlest ones but have immediate openings for children who turned 3 or 4 by September 1, 2018. Children in that age group may join us for just the summer (May 20 – August 9), or we hope you will stay with us through the upcoming year!
Our 2019-20 VPK (Voluntary PreKindergarten) program will begin August 12 with our talented, credentialed staff. We invite you to join us for a VPK Open House on Tuesday, May 7, from 6 – 7:30 p.m.
