Joyce Preschool’s mission is to provide children from diverse ethnic, linguistic, and economic backgrounds with developmentally and culturally appropriate preparation for success in school and lifelong learning.
The preschool implements its mission through an innovative, two-way (Spanish-English) immersion program that successfully prepares children for kindergarten and school achievement while actively involving and strengthening their families.
Joyce maintains a balance of children from Spanish and English speaking families, which is crucial to addressing disparities in student achievement and successful development of literacy skills; the school’s vision is to become a recognized leader in offering two-way immersion and multicultural early childhood education, offering its model for replication to the local and regional community.
Good Samaritan helped start Joyce Nursery School and has supported them for their whole 50 years! We organize their library for them and help with their Children’s Garden in the summer. They are often on our Easter or Christmas Offerings for their special projects and have been recipients of our Good Samaritan Foundation.
