Welcome to our Family…



Dear family,

Welcome to the Children’s Center at Gracelyn. We are a Green Certified Five Star child enrichment facility.

Our educated and experienced teacher teams work hard to provide our children with exciting daily experiences where they can learn, grow and develop socially, emotionally, cognitively and physically through developmentally appropriate practices. Our learning curriculum is focused on play and creativel planned learning experiences (NC Foundations and The Creative Curriculum). These experiences are carefully designed to encourage children to learn colors, shapes, counting and numbering, to enhance fine motor skills, offer simple problem solving activities, daily storytelling and to follow multi-step directions with a special focus on social-emotional development. All of which are developmentally appropriate and necessary components for successful future educational experiences for our little ones.

Our cleaning supplies are certified “green” and we strive to serve organic, locally sourced snacks at all times. We provide morning and afternoon snacks and serve organic milk with the children’s lunches that are packed and brought from home.

Please feel free to stop by for a visit to our delightful little program located on Merrimon Avenue in North Asheville (directly behind McDonalds). We would love the opportunity to meet you and your family!


Jeannie Aiken, Program Director, and Sasha Birchenall, Assistant Director

  1. My children have been attending The Childern’s Center for 5 years!!! There are many wonderful qualities about the center, but the staff is what makes it shine. The staff is the most loving, caring, responsible group of people. We feel so lucky to have the wonderful ladies be such a big part of our children’s lives. We love them!!!!

  2. Our son has been happily attending Gracelyn since he was 1year old. He just turned 4 and still loves it! Most of the time he doesn’t want to leave after being there all day. I interviewed several daycare centers before finding Gracelyn and none of them had the energy I felt when I walked into Gracelyn. It was a remarkably happy & positive energy. I am so glad I chose Gracelyn. Our son has learned so much from the wonderful teachers and other amazing children. I contribute a lot of his success to everyone at Gracelyn & the fact their philosophy is “children learn through playing”. It’s a remarkable daycare with a very loving staff.
