Joy Place is a weekly ministry for young children where they learn and grow together in a hands-on environment. Children have opportunities to learn through interest-driven, spirit-led activities facilitated by our amazing teachers!
Our Joy Place teachers have education and experience in Infant Care Training and Early Childhood Educational Training & Facilities. They have created a beautiful environment where children are discovering God through worship, the arts, prayer, and many other learning activities. Each class has a focus that builds on the next toward a monthly common theme.
If you are looking for a spirit-filled place where your child can grow in God and make friends, Joy Place may have an opening for your child!
HOW IT WORKS:
Joy Place is a 2-day per week program, and for the consistency and development of your child, they need to attend both days. There is a monthly fee per child, with an additional $100 supply fee per Semester. This includes 9:30am-12:00pm on Wednesdays and Fridays (5 hrs. per week). Semesters run Mid-January – June and Mid-September – November. Should you begin in the middle of a Semester, your monthly fee is pro-rated, but we do ask for the same supply fee. If you have more than one child, we offer a 10% sibling discount. Joy Place is a Parent Cooperative Pre-School/K Ministry meaning parents are asked to participate in various areas according to the teachers needs. Because we are a ministry of Convergence House of Prayer, parents are required to stay on the premises and are encouraged to fellowship with one another in the lobby or spend quiet time in the Prayer Room.
CAN WE DROP IN TO TRY IT OUT?
Absolutely! Please come and visit with your child anytime. You are welcome to check out our classroom and meet our teachers!
You can also try Joy Place out anytime and drop off your child (while you stay on site) at a $30 one-time, day rate.
JOY PLACE DIRECTOR: JUNE CHIARELLO
Hi! I’m June Chiarello. The children know me as Miss June! My experience over the last fourteen years is in Early Childhood Education working in preschools, children’s ministries and as a nanny. I’ve worked with infants all the way up to the elementary years.
I’m passionate about developing preschool Bible curriculum that teaches God’s word, instills identity in Christ, and releases into worship. I believe that God can be found and experienced in all areas of learning including sensory activities, social interactions, Bible times, and every learning opportunity we provide. No matter what we are doing, it’s in Him that we live and move and have our being.
I currently hold 24 Early Childhood Education units and am currently enrolled. I am trained in a child guidance technique called “Loving Kids on Purpose.” Thanks for joining us at Joy Place! I am so happy to have you!
