Our Mission Statement


St. John Paul II Early Learning Center strives to provide quality childcare for children. We believe in providing programs that truly enhance the emotional, social, physical and intellectual growth of young children. We are able to do this through the efforts of our staff who are dedicated to upholding our high standards and who, most importantly, love children.

 Our Beliefs



  • the home is the most important factor in a child's development.  We will always strive to support and complement the family in order to promote the healthy development of children and parents.

  • the dignity and worth of each child and family is important.

  • loving, trusting, and respecting each child makes that child capable of loving, trusting and respecting others.

  • each child should be encouraged to have a positive self-image

  • it is important to meet each child's needs for physical, social, emotional and intellectual growth

  • the needs of children change as they grow, accordingly our programs must respond in content and structure

  • children deserve a nurturing, safe and happy environment which promotes their natural curiosity and desire to learn

  • children deserve to have teachers who are capable and caring and whose values enable them to be excellent role models
