We accept children from 6 weeks to 12 years, including a summer program and before- and after-school care.


My Joy Learning Center & Child Care’s mission is to provide affordable child care of highest quality while creating a stimulating and challenging learning environment that creates successful, enthusiastic learners.  Our goal is to team up with our parents to build a strong foundation for learning success.  We believe in nurturing the “whole child” including spiritual, intellectual, social and physical well-being. Together, we can develop early readers, strong character and happy children.


My Joy Learning Center & Child Care is dedicated to providing a fun, warm and educational atmosphere that encourages children to develop at their own pace. We believe that children deserve to develop a positive self-image. We want to help parents to foster that image, along with healthy developmental and spiritual growth. We hope to accomplish this through building and creating strong intellectual, social, physical skills through a variety of group activities, individual play and quiet periods. We believe that through use of various play and learning materials, children gain confidence in their abilities.

At MJLC, we understand that no two children are alike, nor do they always learn best using the same methods.  Therefore, we encourage each child to achieve his or her personal best using the most appropriate and effective method for each child.  It is our goal to reach our children right where they are and help them to develop a love for learning that they will use throughout life.


Our goals are connected to the developmental skills of children.  Our 4 major areas:



All students wear uniforms:

          ONEs – Red Shirt & Tan Paint

          TWOs – Burgundy or Maroon Shirt & Tan Paint

          PRESCHOOL – Navy Shirt & Tan Paint
