The Children of Grace Montessori Center, housed inside Greater Grace Temple, provides pre-school and day care for children of local working parents. The preschool started in 1977 near the church's former location, and moved into the new complex seven years ago.

The school is related to the church but operates independently with its own staff. School assistant director Geanine Edwards says 65 children attend the center, which operates from 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. on weekdays.
