St. Joseph’s Child Development Center
From their earliest experiences, as their young brains develop, children everywhere deserve to nurtured in a learning environment which fosters love, compassion, intellectual stimulation, social development and fun. Too many are deprived of this environment, putting their futures at risk. At St. Joseph’s Child Development Center, children experience a loving devotion to their physical, emotional, intellectual and social development by a dedicated staff of certified, experienced and compassionate professionals who truly believe that each child’s “future is in our hands”.
We provide quality care and a positive, secure, affirming and stimulating learning environment. We welcome children as a GIFT and we love them in the richness of their uniqueness. Through the “pedagogy of love and on the power of affirmation” we help children to develop a healthy balance of mind and spirit and dedicate ourselves to nurturing each child and to laying the foundation for values and a healthy “self”.
