Program: Full-day care for infants and toddlers.
History: Also known as “Baby House,” this center opened in September, 1985 at the request of parents from the original Gretchen’s House who needed care for their preschoolers’ younger siblings. It’s just around the corner from Gretchen’s House-Mount Vernon. The yard is deep and shady. Teachers use strollers, wagons, and front packs to take their children for walks around the neighborhood and to nearby parks. When children are ready for preschool, they’re eager to graduate to “Big House” across the street.
