Breakfast with Santa coming to Turlock
Grace Academy Christian Preschool is hosting a Breakfast with Santa event on Dec. 10 at Larsa Banquet Hall in Turlock (Photo contributed).

The man in the big red suit will be the special guest at a breakfast event in December to benefit a new Christian preschool.

The winter wonderland breakfast, sponsored by Larsa Banquet Hall, will feature a hot buffet breakfast, cookie decorating station, craft corner, coloring station, and a chance to dance with Santa and Mrs. Claus from 8 a.m. to noon Dec. 10.  Each child will receive an electronic photo with Santa and Mrs. Clause on the same day. 

The breakfast will be the first major fundraising effort to start establishing Grace Academy Christian Preschool in the Turlock campus. In 2017 the first Grace Academy Christian Preschool was founded in Modesto. All proceeds from the event will benefit Grace Academy Turlock Campus.  

“Grace Academy Christian Preschool has been a dream for a few years at Mar Addai Parish, Assyrian Catholic Church of the East,” said Sweeny Youmaran, Grace Academy council member. “What better way to start our fundraising efforts than with Santa himself.”

The cost for the Breakfast with Santa event is $20 for adults and $15 for children ages 2 years and up.  Children 2 and under are free.  Seating is limited and reservations are required.  Tickets, sponsorship packages, and vendor opportunities are all available at

The mission of Grace Academy Christian Preschool is that all children have a sense of acceptance, significance and well-being during their stay with us. Grace Academy Christian Preschool believes that children respond and navigate best in their own age-appropriate environment. Young children learn through intellectual challenges, positive self-esteem and integrative peer play. The school’s objective is to provide each child with the resources he or she will need to have a successful preschool experience, to feel loved, respected, secure and gain self-confidence.
