Mt. Joy Early Learning Center

Welcome to Our Center

Welcome to our center! We believe imaginative play and engaging learning activities are the best ways to help children grow and thrive. Our STEM lab fosters an interest in science, technology, engineering, and math, while the reading nook provides a cozy place to curl up with a good book. Plus, our garden will help your child develop an appreciation for nature. Our teachers also serve as mentors for high school students enrolled in a local early childhood education program, and we're proud to offer an interactive environment where they can be actively involved in our classrooms. Visit us to see all we have to offer!
