Giggles Drop-in Childcare will open its second Greenville location next week on Pelham Road beside Earth Fare, according to owner Brandon Kimball.

The center is expected to open either Monday or Tuesday — as soon as a few finals approvals are given, he said. 

The Pelham Road center will offer the same services as its Augusta Street location in a larger space — 4,600 square feet — including an indoor treehouse, theater room, air hockey, Nintendo Wii, and toddler room. In addition, it will feature the only outdoor play area at a drop-in childcare in South Carolina, Kimball said.

The center offers drop-in child care services without requiring an appointment 8:30 a.m.-9 p.m. Mondays through Wednesdays, 8:30 a.m.-10 p.m. Thursdays, 8:30 a.m.-11 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, and 1-4 p.m. Sundays. Parents should first pre-register online or at the center, said Paula Southwell, Giggles Drop-In Childcare area director.

Cost starts at $11 per child per hour with discounts offered for multiple children and hours.
