We are open 7:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, providing extended care for working parents. Children two to five years of age receive personalized attention from our outstanding staff which enables each child to develop according to his/her ability regardless of chronological age.

Children benefit from attending Kindergarten at Joyce's. We pride ourselves on the high level of academic achievement students attain through our Kindergarten program. If they are not academically and/or socially ready to enter First Grade, parents always have the option of having them attend kindergarten again in a public or private school. Unlike public or private schools, Joyce's offers a year-round program which is open during spring, summer, and winter breaks. Children are taught valuable lessons through academic exercises and enrichment programs. They are also given an opportunity to remain with their peers for one more year allowing them to build more self-esteem and maintain self-confidence.
