opening sentence from an early handbook of the Grace M. Eaton Center is
as relevant today as it was when the center was founded in 1926. The
early years are critically important to everyone - and everyone should
have the same chance to grow, regardless of our life situation.
Eaton Center offers this chance. Staffed by caring, certified
professionals, this lovingly maintained facility offers all children -
from infants to 12-year-olds - the nurturing, knowledge and discipline
all of us need to reach our full potential.
graduates of Grace M. Eaton Center have fulfilled the promise by
becoming the people they and their parents knew they could be. They are
professionals, business leaders and community volunteers. They are
caring parents, committed husbands and wives, supportive members of
their churches. They are what they were meant to be.

We care about Parents, Too
No people have more influence on a child than his or
her parents. Grace M. Eaton Center encourages parents to be actively
involved in their child's growth. In addition to ongoing communication,
regularly scheduled parent/teacher conferences keep parents informed
and answer their questions. Our Parent advisory Council helps us make
the Center the best it can be. And our Parents Resource Center helps
parents and grandparents to be the best they can be.
