About Our Daycare


Grace Jones is a fully licensed and certified, IRS designated 501C-3 organization that has been caring for the children of hard-working families in the Florida Keys since 1957, when Grace Jones, a Bahamian immigrant, recognized the lack of services available for minority families in our then racially segregated society.

Today, the State of Florida’s Gold Seal Committee recognizes Grace Jones as one of the finest daycare centers in the United States. Grace Jones operates five days per week, from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., providing nutritious meals and early-learning educational programs for newborns to age six, as well as boys and girls, up to age 14, that attend our regular after-school and Summer Break programs.

Throughout the year, Grace Jones serves up to 85 children of working, and working-poor, families in the Florida Keys weekly. These children and families are the very essence of our service, construction, tourism, and fishing industries. While these parents balance two and even three jobs just to survive, Grace Jones provides only the highest levels of affordable day care available, including skill-based development, early learning initiatives,

child-healthy meals, and a secure environment for their at-risk, and in-need, school-age children.
