About

Joy in Learning has been providing childcare services to children and their families since 1983. For close to 30 years, Joy in Learning has been in business to serve the needs of working families by offering quality child care in a home-like environment. Through the years, the staff of Joy in Learning has watched many children grow and graduate - from preschool to high school. Today these children not only come back to visit, but also work at the center and in many cases choose to send their young children to the same place they went as kids. At the heart of each child’s learning experience is a staff of caring professionals to guide each child. Joy In Learning’s qualified, caring teachers strive to build a strong educational relationship with children and their parents. All our staff share a common commitment to nurturing and educating young children. At Joy In Learning, we know that our families depend on qualified and nurturing caregivers and teachers. Our Business Office places a priority on finding, hiring, and retaining qualified staff. All employees must meet MSDE regulation requirements in order to be eligible for employment. Potential staff members, after interviewing, spend time in the classroom where each candidate is observed interacting with children, parents, and other staff members. Joy In Learning staff is constantly improving their skills through on-going mentoring and continued education training. Staff members must complete training in the identified core of knowledge areas yearly. Joy In Learning is proud to be a partner with TEACH Institute through Anne Arundel Community College. Education students are permitted to complete fieldwork at our center locations in Anne Arundel and Howard counties. Each semester we cooperatively work with students to broaden their experiences with young children and learn through a hands-on approach. All children have an innate curiosity and desire to learn. At Joy in Learning we promote the joy inherent in all learning. In our homelike setting, children feel free and secure to discover and explore and learn at their own pace. At Joy In Learning, we are concerned with the safety and well-being of all the children in its care. Everything from toy selection, to room layout, to playground equipment is designed with the health and safety of your child in mind.

My son went to Joy in Learning in the "Bear" room. He had an amazing experience with wonderful teachers. I always felt comfortable leaving him in such good hands. I think he benefited from the small "home-like" environment. The staff are always friendly and since it's such a small center we got to know all the teachers very well. I never felt like I was leaving him with strangers. I highly recommend this center to anyone looking for child care.

Choosing the right Childcare Provider is the most stressful yet most important thing you can do as a working parent. We recently moved here from another part of the country, having only had ONE other person watch our child prior. I visited/researched several Centers/Providers in the our area before deciding on JIL-Marley Park. A few top reasons we love it; STAFF-I can't say enough good things about the staff. It was important to me that the... more
