normal'>The Graves County School District’s Early Eagle Academy Childcare Program opened earlier this school year to offer families convenient, affordable daycare targeted to children ages 2-5. This Monday, Nov. 13, from 5-7 p.m. at Graves County Middle School, the academy’s teachers and students will offer a glimpse of the program open to anyone who chooses to attend. Families considering childcare there especially are encouraged to visit. Families may come and go during that time or stay for the entire event.

All the district’s preschool programs are partnering in the Busy Town project as well. Vendors and others will add a bazaar atmosphere to the Monday evening program. 

normal'>“It’s a fun project to help showcase the Early Eagle Academy,” said Courtney Hayden, who leads it. She said Early Eagle Academy has experienced a great start, since opening earlier this school year. “We have some wonderful, creative teachers and assistants who love kids and, of course, the kids not only make it fun, but are amazing in how fast they learn and grow!”

normal'>Graves County Schools Superintendent Kim Dublin said the academy is the result of two main factors. “Mayfield and Graves County have a shortage of daycare options for families now and our district has an available classroom in four of schools, so we are offering this service.”

normal'> “It focuses on building school-readiness skills in a playful environment,” explained  Melissa Bazzell, the district’s early childhood consultant. “Primary goals are to help the child and family prepare for kindergarten.”

normal'>The program operates year-round Monday-Friday 7 a.m.-5:30 p.m. Options include full-day, full-week childcare; part-time childcare for current Graves County preschool students in a “wrap-around” program to assist working families at most locations; and drop-in/emergency care services, as space is available.

Child daycare sites include: Graves County Middle School and the elementary schools of Fancy Farm and Farmington. Sedalia Elementary is available only to current preschool students. Plans are to expand to other Graves County Schools in the future.
