Our Philosophy

Giggles & Grace Early Learning Center, Inc. is a non-profit organization committed to serving preschool and daycare services to children between the agaes of 6 weeks to 12 years old.

Giggles & Grace Early Learning Center, Inc. with community, parents and teachers, is committed to providing a safe nurturing Christian environment emphasizing the total development of each child; spiritual, intellectual, emotional, physical, and social, while accepting and celebrating our individual and cultural diversity.

Our History

St. Paul Lutheran Church established Giggles & Grace Early Learning Center as a compassionate response to the childcare needs of the Western Treasure Valley Area. Together with Barb Gerulf, owner of Giggle Tree day care, the congregation was able to build a 5,400 square foot building to serve 70+ children. The Western Treasure Valley is blessed to have many great people who have donated their time, treasure, and talent, to open the doors for children to have a safe and loving place to stay while their parents, grandparents, or guardians are at work.

Giggles & Grace is a young organization; however, the teachers in our Early Learning Center have over 60 years of teaching experience and are continuing their education. We recently developed a partnership with the Oregon Child Development Coalition to provide early childhood education, care, and advocacy with unique and supportive services to enhance family growth and community access at a second site. At this time, we are in the process and open to developing additional partnerships to serve more children and families within the Western Treasure Valley.

Our Mission

As caregivers and educators, our mission is to provide a safe and developmentally appropriate learning environment, which fosters a child's natural desire to explore,discover, create, and become a lifelong learner.
