Our Beginning:

Before after programs
Mt. Olive Child Care & Learning Center was incorporated in 1976 as a non-profit, state licensed organization: recognizing the need for quality, affordable child care and education in the community.  Our Center is governed by a volunteer Board of Trustees and maintains an informal partnership with the Township to provide these services.  Originally a small preschool, the Center has grown over the years to encompass enrollment for Infants, Toddlers, Preschoolers, and School-Age children (6 weeks through 13 years of age), as well as an ongoing Parent Education/Empowerment Program.  Mt. Olive Child Care & Learning Center is the oldest child care center in Mt. Olive Township and the first center to earn national accreditation in 1993 and maintain quality standards for the past 27 years.  In addition, the Center is the first school in Morris County to earn 4 Stars through New Jersey’s quality rating improvement system (Grow NJ Kids) for high quality.


Our Philosophy

The mission of the Center is to provide quality, affordable child care and education and family support services for the community, regardless of income.

Our Educational Philosophy:
We strive to nurture and support the intellectual, emotional, social, and physical growth and development of each child through active learning and discovery, as well as to guide and reinforce every child’s positive self-esteem to build confident learners and children.
