Mission Statement

Our mission/vision incorporates a safe and stimulating environment that enriches the children through these important first years. We incorporate open communication between staff and parents. Parents are always welcome to visit their child, come for feedings or nursing, or as their schedules allows.

The Journey Begins (TJB) knows that each child is an individual and needs to be treated as such. Children begin care at all stages of development and we will guide them through these stages and build upon them.

Flexibility of the program is important, as the needs of infants are constantly changing and developing. A positive and happy staff, a trusting relationship between care-giver and the child, clean and well-organized environment, room to play, indoors and outside, in a safe and stimulating environment.

We will provide a daily activity sheet for your child, however, we feel it is important, and encourage you to ask questions regarding your child’s activity, nutrition, growth and development.

TJB provides a nurturing environment where children can grow and develop physically, mentally, emotionally and socially. Children learn through their play and age-appropriate activities, toys, and developmental milestones.

We will be looking for large and small motor development, coordination, interaction with peers and communicating in the physical domain and assisting with language and cognitive development.

Our goal is to provide all of the children in our care, a clean, safe, comfortable, loving environment where they can play and grow.


Individual and/or group tours are scheduled when a space is available.  Please be aware that we limit people walking through the classrooms to maintain the children’s comfort.  Once you are signed up on our waitlist, just contact us and we will try to schedule a tour with you as soon as we know of an upcoming space.
