Our Child Care Centers

Holy Family Early Childhood operates two full-service, year-round child care centers, Holy Ghost and St. Joseph the Worker. With exceptional facilities – including full-sized gymnasiums and outdoor playgrounds – both centers offer a home away from home for your littlest loved ones. Our caring staff members are here to provide peace of mind to working parents.
