About the Provider

Description: Welcome to The Children’s Center at Gracelyn. The Children’s Center is a certified “Green” five star child enrichment facility. Our cleaning supplies are certified “green” and all of our foods are organic, whole wheat and whole grain. We provide morning and afternoon snacks and serve organic milk with the children’s lunches that are packed and brought from home.

Our educated and experienced teacher teams work hard to provide our children with exciting daily experiences where they can learn, grow and develop socially, emotionally, cognitively and physically through developmentally appropriate practices. Our learning curriculums are focused on play and creatively planned learning experiences (NC Foundations and The Creative Curriculum). These experiences are carefully designed to encourage children to learn colors, shapes, counting and numbering, to enhance fine motor skills (strengthening hands and fingers for writing), offer simple problem solving activities, daily storytelling and to follow multi-step directions with a special focus on social-emotional development. All of which are developmentally appropriate and necessary components for successful future educational experiences for our little ones.

I have used this provider for more than 6 months

The Children's Center at Gracelyn provided my son outstanding care. The high teacher to child ratio in the toddler room in combination with the fact all the teachers (in all rooms) have been there a very long time is wonderful. I very highly recommend them!
