Jaycees Child Care Center – “Providing Safe, Affordable, Quality Child Care”

The Jaycees Child Care Center is a state licensed facility with a program that is structured to accommodate both the preschool and childcare concept. Our program includes daily academic instruction as well as art & crafts, music & of course old fashioned fun. Our program has been very successful in preparing children for elementary school and has been "time tested" with excellent feedback from parents.


Play is a natural function, and the learning that takes place is achieved through the process of “doing.” Through a sequence of exploration, experimentation, repetition and discovery, the “play” becomes learning.

Each child is a unique being, worthy of respect and love regardless of talents or disposition. The interaction between the teachers and the children dictates the success of our program. Therefore, when good relationships blossom, learning flourishes.

Each child has his/her own learning style; children learn through observing, listening, repeating (verbally), doing it themselves, or a combination of these learning styles. Our teachers plan a variety of activities to include all of these learning styles so that each child has an opportunity to learn in the way that he/she learns best.

The daily schedules are designed for flexibility. Activity groups and settings are varied, i.e., indoors, outdoors, quiet, group and individual. Children are encouraged to be self-directed and selective. This gives them the freedom to make choices and provides them the opportunity to accept responsibilities, to develop self-discipline and have some control over their environment.
