The Jefferson Child Care & Education Center welcomes you and your child to our childcare program. The childcare center, a non-profit organization, is governed by a Board of Trustees comprised of local citizens and parents. The Center originated as a preschool program in 1974 and expanded to school-age care in 1983. We are now serving more than 150 children in our preschool, before and after kindergarten, school age and summer camp programs, which are located in Lake Hopatcong and Oak Ridge.
Our programs are designed to provide safe, healthy developmentally appropriate environments for children of working parents. Within the confines of the policies outlined in this information packet, you will find our staff to be sensitive and flexible in addressing the individual needs of children and busy, working families. We will do our best to accommodate your childcare needs whenever our regulations, space, and budgetary restrictions permit.
We regard parents as the child’s first and most important teacher and, therefore, we welcome your input in understanding the unique needs of your child. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to call the Child Care Office at 973-663-2704. The Child Care Office is located at our Nolan’s Point Road Preschool, and you are welcome to stop in at any time. We are looking forward to sharing our programs with you and your family. Thank you.
