Expressive Beginnings Child Care recently announced it will serve 120 children in the Greece area and keep its youngest students with the same teacher until they turn age 3.
The 10,000-square foot facility also will provide family rooms that help families and children build relationships.
The Greece center is the third for Heritage Christian Services and is located at the corner of Stoneridge and Stone roads. Like other locations, the Greece site offers curriculum that meets state standards for common core and is inspired by Reggio Emilia, which encourages children to express themselves and uses children's interests and curiosity to guide learning.
“It's important to us, as an agency, to grow and diversify in areas that are mission right and business right,” said Marisa Geitner, president and CEO of Heritage Christian Services. "We're known as a top service provider for people with disabilities, and we believe that's because we work to really listen and focus on what is most important to each person. We show the same level of respect to the children and families we serve at Expressive Beginnings."
Families who attend Expressive Beginnings can also expect live streaming video of classrooms and other services — prepared dinners and children's haircuts — on location. Children will have access to therapeutic and recreational services provided by the Pieters Family Life Center, another program of Heritage Christian Services.
Expressive Beginnings brought 30 jobs to staff its center, including teacher and assistant positions.
