St. Joseph Catholic Early Learning Center, a part St. Joseph Catholic Church, offers you and your child more than childcare; it is an extended nursery provided in a loving and faith-based environment. In our fast-paced world, it is often difficult for parents to balance the demands of work with the responsibilities of providing quality care and supervision for their young children. The ELC offers parents a place where their children will be accepted, nurtured and encouraged.
We strive to meet your child's physical, intellectual, social and emotional needs. We believe that children learn best in a creative, natural learning environment. While enrolled at St. Joseph ELC, you and your child are part of an extended family who practices the virtues of patience, sharing, compassion for self and others, and teamwork on a daily basis.
Our staff uses their knowledge and experience to offer stimulating developmental age-appropriate activities. This includes music and movement, outdoor play, sensory activities, arts and crafts, early literacy, motor skills, quiet story time, dramatic play, and lots of laughter, hugs, love and positive guidance. Spanish and sign language are taught to children of all ages, and a math and science enrichment program is offered at the Junior Pre Kindergarten level.
A child must be between the ages of eight weeks to three years old to be admitted to the program. The ELC is located next to St. Joseph Catholic Church on Preston Drive. Our hours are 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Monday - Friday.
