Director/Teacher - Patty Engdahl

Grace Presbyterian Preschool provides a Christian environment to develop the children’s whole being (emotional, spiritual, social, intellectual and physical) so that they become confident individuals ready to meet the challenges the world will give them. All of these areas are important and cannot be entirely separated from each other. We feel that the children should be active participants in the learning process by using all their senses. Children learn through play and each child has their own developmental time scale. They should be allowed some freedom to experiment with different processes to express their own creativity or level of development. The children should be encouraged, but not pushed into learning. Most importantly, we feel that each child needs to feel good about themselves and know God loves them. Their view of themselves and others dictates how they react to experiences that life presents to them.


Our school was established in 1982. It is a half-day program operating from August through May with breaks similar to the Lodi Unified School District modified traditional calendar.


The school is open to children between the ages of 2 years 9 months and 5 years of age. They are accepted regardless of race, nationality or religious creed.
