A Place to Grow has been in private operation since 1989.
The facility is solely owned by Dublin resident and parent, Beth Amirault.
Avoiding the corporate structure of larger nationally recognized child care centers, A Place To Grow is able to provide consistency, security, and prides itself on our unique staff longevity record.
A Place to Grow nurtures the family and the child, making every family's experience enjoyable, loving, and trusting.
The goal of A Place To Grow is to offer every child, from infants to kindergarten, a safe and stimulating environment as they climb up the ladder of development.
By providing a nurturing atmosphere, rich in quality care and individualized attention, we encourage children to evolve at unique stages of learning and socializing beyond the boundaries of their home place.
