St. Joseph the Worker Day School, a division of St. Joseph the Worker Grade School, provides care and educational services to families with children 6 weeks of age to 3 years of age not potty trained. We also offer after-care up to 12 years of age for any student enrolled in St. Joseph the Worker and the Hancock County School District.

We believe that early childhood is a unique and important period of growth. Education and care-giving during this period will focus on all areas of development – physical, spiritual, social, emotional, and intellectual. These needs are met through a play-based program in a faith-based environment. We recognize that a child’s development is also influenced by his/her family and community. We are committed to supporting families by maintaining open communication. We encourage parental involvement in our education and care-giving activities.
