About us


Selecting a preschool for your child is an incredibly important and sometimes overwhelming task. Our families are so important to us. We realize that you know your child better than anyone and we see the early years of education as a trusted partnership. Here at GLOW Preschool, parents know that we are never too busy to talk about your child and how to best support them. Our preschool has been operating with the wonderful support of Grace Lutheran Church of Westchester for over 50 years. We are proud of this and proud of our team for always learning and striving to offer the best for our children in an ever changing community and world. We believe that each child is a gift with endless potential. Our job is to facilitate them in finding their voice and shining their light.



We believe that play is crucial for children’s growth. Self-directed, open-ended, spontaneous, messy, imaginative play is the backbone of our program. At GLOW, instilling a connection to nature is vital. We make getting outside in all weather a top priority. We know that relationships matter. We understand how important it is for children to feel safe and loved for who they are on all days. We believe children learn from each other. We believe in the importance of teaching mindfulness every day in our classroom as a lifelong tool. We believe that all children are innate artists who need choices and lots of materials to explore and express themselves. We recognize that each child who walks through our doors is a unique individual and we celebrate each child accordingly. We believe that early childhood is a journey and that no two paths look the same.
