From Our Website

Some of our buildings have space available for after-hours activities by currently enrolled families and non-profit groups. Anyone using the centers must abide by our nut-free policy, which you can read about here.


Everyone knows the phrase "Terrible Twos, " but the amount of development that takes place between one and three years of age can better be described as terribly exciting! Our toddler toys and activities encourage children to test, explore, and master new skills and concepts. Classrooms and furnishings account for toddlers' high energy levels and the challenges of sharing materials and space. Toddlers go outside every day for playground time, neighborhood walks, and often take their activities outdoors.


Sometimes the word "daycare" evokes images of a place where children primarily pass the time while their parents are at work. At Gretchen's House, we refer to ourselves as child care centers because we are focused on the child, not just getting through the day. Gretchen's House is a place where children develop and thrive! What makes us different from an average daycare? Our child care programs feature child-centered, emergent curriculum for children of all ages. Our teachers have college degrees in early childhood or a related field.


Our infants and toddlers (ages 3-36 months) are cared for in small groups of 6-12 children. A separate space within this area is set aside for infant care. This accommodates the particular needs of very young babies who spend much of their time eating and sleeping before they become mobile. Once a child is creeping or walking, there are large spaces for active exploration, areas for messy activities, and small, soft places for quiet reading, singing, pretend play, or one-on-one play with a teacher or friend.
