Welcome to Grace Neighborhood Nursery School

Grace Neighborhood Nursery School (GNNS) was established in 1961, GNNS began with a $50 gift, a few borrowed bicycles, and 10 families.


At Grace, we play to learn and learn to play.

GNNS offers a pre-school experience for children from 33 months through 5 years old. Our program is dedicated to developing a child’s natural creativity, curiosity, and sense of wonder. We strive to nurture in each child a strong sense of self-worth and desire to learn.

Crucial to the richness of our program is the strong sense of community Grace maintains with the families of its students — past and present. There are several family activities and monthly parent advisory board meetings where you and your ideas are always welcome. Parent volunteers are needed and encouraged to help with a variety of projects.

Grace’s convenient location near the Uptown area allows teachers and their classes to walk to the Walker Library, Triangle Park, Lake of the Isles, and our beautiful Grace garden.DSC_0008
