Grace Early Childhood Care and Education Center

Greetings Grace Families,

It is with great excitement we welcome you back to another fantastic year at Grace Early Childhood. We'd like to personally welcome all the new families who are joining us this school year and are excited you are part of the Grace family! The halls have been buzzing with our little learners as they become part of their classroom communities. Our teachers are already building meaningful relationships and developing their class families. It's truly wonderful to have our Grace family back and we are looking forward to another great year at Grace Early Childhood Care & Education Center!

REMINDERS

  • Parents in our Fee Based Care Programs, please remember to wear your PINK badge during drop off and pick up times. This allows us to quickly identify you during these times and helps to ensure the safety of all our our students.
  • If someone other than parents are picking up the student, they must check in with the front office. Their name must be on the authorized pick up list and identification will be required. If you'd like to add someone to the authorized pick-up list, you can do so by stopping by the front office and we will quickly get them added.
  • Any type of transportation changes MUST be in written form. Please submit an email or note to your child's teacher indicating the needed changes. Transportation changes must be made no later than thirty minutes prior to dismissal.
  • Bus Changes-All bus changes need to be made through Grace. We will then contact Crabtree Transportation with the updated information. There are no "same day" bus changes and 24 hours are needed from the time of the request. If a parent would like to change buses due to a change of address or change of babysitter, new proof of residency will need to be completed at Central Office. Central Office will then inform Grace and Crabtree Transportation once this has been completed.
  • Visitors- We welcome all visitors to Grace, and have many join us daily. Remember, make sure to have a valid ID or your pink badge with you upon arrival. Please stop by the front desk to sign in and you will receive a visitor's badge to wear during your visit with us.
  • Students in the Cottages- As a safety precaution, once the doors have closed on the Cottages, all students must come in through the front office. If your child is arriving late to school, you will need to come into Grace and sign your child in for the day. You will be given a pass to walk them out to the Cottage.
  • Valet-Please remember to have your sign displayed in your windshield. If you do not have your car sign, you will need to park, enter the building, be listed on the information sheet as approved to pick up your child and show proper ID.


Our goal at Grace is to ensure a welcoming, warm and safe environment for anyone who visits our building. Thank you in advance for helping us as we work to accomplish this very important goal!

Keeping Teeth Healthy

Even though baby teeth will eventually be lost, they still need to be treated to avoid tooth decay. Tooth decay creates unnecessary pain for children, which affects their ability to sleep well and focus in the classroom. If your child is in need of dental treatment The Cass County Dental Clinic might be an option for you.


The Cass County Dental Clinic is non-profit and provides comprehensive dental care to low-income children from birth through age 20 who are insured by Missouri Medicaid or who are uninsured and below 200% FPL.

- Spanish translators are available.
