Our Goal


Joycare Pediatric Day Health Center endeavors to create the therapeutic environment necessary to delivery quality care. Our staff of qualified professionals will tend to the specialized needs of each child placed under our care. Our aim is to provide a social environment that stimulates interaction while meeting the physical and emotional needs of your child.

Our daily programming will include routine clinical interventions, fun activities, and any speech, physical, or occupational therapies prescribed for your child. We hope our program enables primary caregivers to focus on other family obligations.
