Growing in GRACE II is open to the public for all hours and days of normal operation (Monday – Friday; 6:00 am – 6:00 pm).
Drop-in care is available on an open slot basis only with the consent of the Director.
Children (2 years – 5 years) may be enrolled throughout the year. The Center will not exceed our licensing capacity at any time.
