The Journey Begins follows a traditional school year. Our oldest children age out of our program and go off to preschool who in turn leave preschool for kindergarten. Our largest enrollment period is for the Fall, with a mid-late August start date. We often have a very small secondary enrollment, with a January start date. There are rare occasions, randomly throughout the year, we have an unexpected space and we try our best to get those filled immediately.

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.

We feel it is important, and encourage parents to ask questions regarding their child’s activity, nutrition, growth and development. If we don’t know…we can’t help!

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, S.T.E.A.M., toys, and developmental milestones.

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