About the Provider


Located at the edge of Little Tokyo, between Grand Central Market, City Hall and the Arts District; Grace Iino Child Care Center is a “home away from home” for infants and toddlers from 6 weeks to 2½ years old. Since 2003, Grace Iino Child Care Center, a program of the community-based nonprofit, Little Tokyo Service Center (LTSC), has provided licensed quality childcare to families who live and work in downtown and Little Tokyo.

For local residents, Grace Iino offers childcare within walking distance, with a safe and kid-friendly place for children to learn in an urban early education setting. The facility offers spacious indoor classrooms, as well as a playground area with plenty of space for exploring outdoor activities. For parents who commute to work Downtown, Grace Iino offers a convenient location near their jobs, with open access to their children – for example, if they are breastfeeding their babies, they can visit at lunchtime, or participate in Parent Read Friday activities for toddlers.

Grace Iino provides a safe and trusting environment, giving parents comfort and relief that their child is being nurtured. Grace Iino’s teachers actively practice “responsive care,” promoting a strong bond between the child and teacher by responding to their daily needs with love and respect. LTSC’s mission is to meet the critical needs of people and build community, improve the lives of families through social services, and strengthen neighborhoods through affordable housing and community development.

Additional Information:

“Raising a family downtown poses several challenges as well as benefits. Having a licensed day care in walking distance was definitely a benefit. All three girls bonded immediately to the attentive and professional staff. The girls were stimulated by the vast array of toys, games and books. Grace Iino also had a wonderful and safe outdoor area that was well supervised. The meals and snacks were nutritious and the staff showed genuine patience and understanding to each child. As a Nurse Administrator, I was especially appreciative of the strict hand washing policy and cleanliness of the Center. Upon picking the girls up, the staff gave a detailed summary of how the girls' day went and their small but wonderful accomplishments.” --J. Brasel, former parent
