Grace England Named Statewide Finalist in H-E-B Awards


We are pleased to announce that Grace England Early Childhood Center is one of 5 statewide finalists for the HEB Excellence in Education Awards!

The Early Childhood Award is designed to support public or private schools that focus on the care and education of children under the age of five. The purpose of the award is to offer support to help create or enhance Kinder Readiness programs that prepare children to enter Kindergarten socially and academically ready to learn.

“Grace England has always been unwaveringly committed to the whole child,” Superintendent Dr. Bret Champion said. “The High-Quality Teaching practices in their classrooms prepare our youngest learners for their first few steps into their Promise2Purpose  journey. We are incredibly proud of our staff and administration at Grace England for relentlessly pursuing their students’ success and receiving this recognition.”


“This nomination has ignited an even stronger commitment to transforming the educational experiences of Klein’s littlest learners,” Principal Jaunee Perry stated. “As we all believe at Grace England, “We are the promise.”

Grace England has set a standard for what early childhood education should be in the Klein community, and now, in the State. Grace England’s teachers and administration have been dedicated to one shared vision that every student enters with a promise and exits with a purpose. This dedication and hard work has led to the school’s success on many different levels, but most importantly, the success of their students.  

“From the time we opened our doors, our collective dedication has been to lay the best foundation possible for our students by becoming expert pre-k practitioners and providing an environment that enthusiastically welcomes collaboration from all investors,” Principal Jaunee Perry said. “We are honored to have our efforts recognized as a 2019 HEB Excellence in Education finalist.”

The winner of the award will be announced in early May. This distinction is one more indicator that Grace England continues to be an exemplary and innovative education institution for our kids and our Klein community.
