Our Philosophy

“We believe all children need a warm, safe, and secure atmosphere where each child is able to mature and develop a positive self image.”

We provide an environment with a wide variety of new and stimulating experiences in which the child’s involvement reinforces self-confidence, creativity, and independence.

We believe individual growth is a shared expereince. Children learn from us; we learn from them. Through this interaction each child has the potential to grow and develop.

Through play and directed activities, the child can explore problems, which encourage imagination and a love of life but also offer choices that promote respect for one another. We intend to make the time spent at Daycare at St. Joe’s to be a positive experience in the life of every child.


Peggy O’Flahrity – Our Director

I’d like to take this opportunity to say “Hello” and tell you a little about myself.

I began my career at St. Joe’s in March 1998, as a staff member. Shortly thereafter, I was promoted to the director.

I have always enjoyed children and spent a lot of my teen years baby-sitting for family, friends, and people from town as well as my older brothers’ families.

I am very excited to be part of a great team that will always be here for you and your child. We look forward to providing your child or children a happy, caring, enjoyable, safe atmosphere, and making new relationships with you all. As the director of this beautiful center, my door is always open! Please let me know what I can do for you.
