The GraceWorks Early Childhood Program is licensed by the Department of Early Education for Children (DEEC) to provide year-round care for a combined count of 53 children/day for our toddler,  pre-school and pre-kindergarten programs.In our younger Toddler Room children range from  15 months through 2.9 years old.  GraceWorks also has a mixed class with older toddlers and preschoolers.  In this class the  children's ages range from approximately 2 years - 3 years old.    Children in this age group are moving from the dependency of infancy to the independence of preschool years.  The emphasis is on helping children to develop their self-reliance in a supportive environment.

The Toddler and Toddler/Preschool curricula follow guidelines approved by the Department of Early Education and Care (DEEC).
