Joy Central is a ministry of Central Bible that now serves more than 200 children. We offer drop-in care, flexible scheduling, and too many other options to list out here. Most importantly, this ministry has been created to serve the East Portland community at large by offering not only the safest and best child care in PDX but also a kind of care that is built upon the love and virtues of Jesus. Please visit Joy Central’s main website for information on scheduling, rates, employment opportunities and more.
6:00 AM to 6:30 PM, Monday through Friday.
Our programs serve every age at flexible times that work for your family. We offer childcare & preschool, transportation to local schools, music lessons, and even homework help for the older ones.
Occasionally families eat dinner together and parents attend drop-in classes where they might make lasagna in the cooking class, share ideas about parenting a challenging child, or discuss their ideas about God and spirituality.
This is a place where children, parents and staff grow together, dream big and experience a sense of belonging.
