Trinity In-Home Care, a home health agency, is opening Lawrence’s first drop-in child care center Monday.
Imagine Drop-in Childcare, 536 Fireside Court, will be available to children, ages 1 to 12. The cost is $7 per hour for one child and $3 for each additional child. The center is licensed to take care of 12 children at a time.
The center will be open from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Wednesday and Dec. 28 through Dec. 30.
Its regular hours will begin in January when it will be open Wednesday through Saturday, with extended hours Friday and Saturday.
On Dec. 1, Trinity began a social program for teens and adults with developmental disabilities called Discovery.
The group meets from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays and from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. Thursdays on the second floor of 536 Fireside Court. They have had a budget workshop and organic cooking class. On Tuesday, the group will celebrate the holidays.
The cost is $5 to cover meal costs on Thursdays, and the agency will send a bill for clients who are on state waiver programs.
