Joy Christian Preschool was founded in 1984. We are a joy filled campus serving the needs of children from 6 weeks old through high school. At Joy Christian Preschool we keep God as our center and work with parents to nurture the total child...spiritually, socially, emotionally, intellectually, and physically. Our loving, and caring staff will empower your child to do more and be more like Jesus through a wide variety of practical and meaningful learning experiences. Joy is a nurturing and safe environment for children to experience their earliest years of education.
Infants & Toddlers
This is an exciting time in the life of your family,and we are happy to be apart of it. The goal of the infant and toddler programs are to provide a safe, loving environment in which the child can attach to and bond with the teacher. From the safety of this relationship, the child can then confidently begin to explore his/her abilties. Each classroom is filled with materials to stimulate all of the child's senses; vision, hearing, touch, taste, and smell.
