Grace M. Eaton Child Care and Parent Resource Center is a “3-star” center (the highest rating awarded by the State of Tennessee) that offers childcare in a loving, learning environment for children 6-weeks to 12-years-old of low-income families. The agency ensures that children are cared for in an environment characterized by low staff-child ratios, small group sizes, qualified caring staff, an innovative child development curriculum, optimal health and safety standards, and a planned program of parent involvement. We deal with the total child in all the early childhood domains (cognitive, language, gross motor, fine motor, social/emotional, and self help). We provide help to parents through workshops, counseling, referrals, etc.
We are open Monday through Friday from 6:30am until 5:30pm. We serve a nutritious breakfast, lunch, and afternoon snack daily. We offer speech, language, and hearing testing (including treatment for children who need it); we offer an early literacy intervention program, and an on-site therapy program for children with behavior issues.
