Grace Early Education in Tyler will be expanding its center by 80 additional spots for children ages eight weeks to 18 months.
Grace EEC is remodeling an existing building to be the new toddler center. It’s estimated to be completed by Dec. 15 and will begin accepting children on Dec. 27.
“What an exciting time for our program to be flourishing. We are excited to be able to gain more students and have the opportunity to spread the word of God and his goodness to more children and their families,” said Gail Moore, executive director of Grace Early Education Centers in Tyler and Lindale.
For nearly 30 years, Grace EEC in Tyler and Lindale has cared for 350 children daily and offers a Christ-centered education for children in East Texas.
Kirk Hudson, executive pastor of operations of Grace Community Church, said he is excited for the expansion of Grace EEC, especially being able to reach more community members.
“At Grace, we are committed to allocating the appropriate resources needed to minister and educate students as we partner with families. We are excited about the provision to expand our Lindale and Tyler EEC facilities over the last two years,” Hudson said.
He also said that as a result of the expansion Grace EEC has had the opportunity to educate 500 children in both locations.
