The Children's Center
1000 Miners Road, St. Joseph, 49085 (directions)
25 Years ago I took my daughter to daycare for the first time. She was 18 months old and our greatest treasure. When I came to pick her up at the end of the day she was sitting outside of the program director's office alone and crying. It broke my heart. I picked her up and left - and never went back.
It was in that moment that I knew what I was created to do. I wanted to provide loving care for children. A place where children could laugh and learn, but also a place where they would be held and comforted when they were sad or afraid.
After 10 years of working in early education, I opened The Children's Center, and for the last 15 years we've been wrapping our arms around families in our community.
We touched the lives of over one thousand children and have given those families the assurance that their children are loved.
We are excited about giving parents high-quality care, education and love for their little miracles. We know we will breathe confidence into the St. Joseph community by being here. We'll be sharing our heart with St. Joseph and we hope you'll be part of that!
