Strategies For Sustainability: 

The Growing Place operates six sites in the West End, offering programs for children eight weeks to 12 years old. The Growing Place is nationally accredited and has been awarded the highest rating of four stars by the Keystone Stars program, a statewide quality initiative. Its early care and education centers are accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children. 

Impact Of Program: 

Today, The Growing Place headquarters and largest center is located in the Chestnuthill Elementary School in Brodheadsville.  It alone serves up to 200 children per year through its preschool and working parent programs for children from eight weeks through school age. 

Evaluation Tools: 

At this time my evaluation of the program is the interaction between the participants.

Length and Stage of Project: 

The Growing Place began in 1976 as an outreach of Salem-St. Paul Evangelical Lutheran Church in Kresgeville.  What began as one small child care center has grown into five centers and several distinct programs, shaping the lives of thousands of children in the West End of Monroe County.
