Our Purpose

Why JOY center exists

JOY Center is in partnership with Christ Community Church and we are housed in their main building on the ministry campus.  We currently occupy two hallways with our own entrance and are a locked facility. (only staff, parents, and vital church personnel have access.  Visitors must be escorted in.)  Our playground is attached and also secure.

It is the foundational desire to provide the community a Christian early childhood education center that assists parents with their overall role as the primary educators of their children.  Our responsibility is to provide a safe, loving, and nurturing environment where children can grow in the social, emotional, creative, spiritual, cognitive, and physical areas of development.

We are a Christian School

JOY Center has a strong commitment to God’s word and we fully integrate Biblical principles into every aspect of our curriculum.  We endeavor to reflect the light and love that flow from our relationship with Jesus Christ.  We are distinct in our staffing and curriculum, our commitment to truth and integrity, and the manner in which our young children are cared for and taught.  We will provide a loving and nurturing Christian perspective that will foster a positive self-esteem and a child’s acceptance of his/her role at home, at school, at play, and at church.
