Meet Our Director

Hello, my name is Faithe Johnson, Director of Grace United Methodist Preschool here in Venice, FL.  I first started my journey with the Grace family in 2015 as an Assistant Director and moved into the role of Director in 2016.  Grace Preschool is truly a special place.

I hold a BA degree from Mankato State University in Elementary Education, an Advanced Level Florida Director’s Credential, have over 20 years of Early Childhood experience and 15 years of experience directing private, corporate and non-profit centers.  My true passion is non-profit; working with our community, families and teachers in order to provide the best early learning experience for all young learners.  I believe all children should have access to a high quality early learning program to enable them to enter kindergarten fully prepared and ready to learn! I hope to increase our scholarships available to struggling families to decrease this barrier. I am a member of the National Association for the Education of Young Children(NAEYC), (FLAEYC)-FL Chapter of NAEYC, United Methodist Association of Preschools (UMAP) as well as Southern Early Childhood Association (SECA). Partnering with these organizations and others in our community helps us achieve the goal of offering a high quality program. As an accredited, non-profit, Christian preschool, families can feel confident that their children are in a great school.

In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my husband, two children and kitties, going to the beach, reading and tending to my koi, plants and flowers outdoors. I welcome all families to visit our preschool to learn more about our programs and to meet our wonderful teachers and staff!

If you have any questions, comments or concerns please give us a call at 941-485-4312 or stop in and visit.

– I can’t wait to meet you!

Mrs. Faithe Johnson
