A local nonprofit organization will celebrate the grand opening of a new pre-school daycare center in Waltham this week.

The Waltham Creative Start Children's Center, located at 169 Elm St., was launched in early January by Communities United Inc., which has pre-school programs already in Watertown, Newton, Arlington, and Woburn.

The grand opening for the building is Thursday, Feb. 28 from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. The event will feature a ribbon cutting, a meet-and-greet with staff, a tour of the building, and light refreshments.

The location will also host an open house on Thursday, March 7 between 10 a.m. and 11 a.m., and between 4 p.m. and 5 p.m.

The Waltham location currently offers both half- and full-day care for children aged "2.9 years" and up, and offers four classrooms - which accommodate about 20 children each. Company employees said they hope to open a fifth classroom soon.

Toddler care is available at the Watertown, Newton and Woburn sites.

Children are accepted on a rolling admission basis, but sometimes must put applicants on a waitlist, the employee said.

For more information on the center, visit the pre-school's website.
