Goodwill Childcare hosting open house Aug. 3

Goodwill Childcare will be hosting an Open House on Aug. 3 for parents and families interested in having their child attend the new center.

Those attending will have the chance to check out the center, ask questions, and meet our staff including teachers and Childcare Administrator Mary Anne Queen who has nearly eight years of experience as a paraprofessional in the Athens City Schools working with children with disabilities and a decade of experience as a licensed home childcare provider.

“We are excited to meet the families and children who are interested in attending the center and share with them our vision to be a premiere provider of childcare services by valuing all children as individuals and being a trusted partner and beacon of positivity in the lives of children and their families,” Mary Anne said. “We are in the final steps of readying the center for the state licensure inspection and can’t wait to open.”

The Open House will be from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. Aug. 3 at the center which is located at 2541 Western Ave. next to the Goodwill store.

The center initially will provide services for up to 34 children ages 0-4 each day with plans to expand in 2024.
