JOYFUL JOURNEYS

 

Joyful Journeys, a state  licensed facility, is designed to provide a secure and stimulating  environment for your child while they are in our care. Each child  receives a variety of learning experiences to foster intellectual,  social and emotional growth. They are encouraged to express their  feelings to develop self-confidence and are given an opportunity to  socialize with others. Each day offers challenging active periods  integrated with quiet, restful times. We offer young children the  opportunity to explore and develop in many different areas: science and  nature, language arts, dramatic play, physical education, spiritual  awareness. Large outdoor and indoor play areas provide an opportunity  for developing large motor skills.
