The Annual Joyful Noise Carnival!

Friday, April 20 from 6:30 - 8:00

Come One, Come All to the 2018 Joyful Noise Carnival!

Our annual Joyful Noise carnival will take place on Friday, April 20, from 6:30 - 8:00. All over the center, we'll be hosting exciting games, as well as an art walk, face-painting, snacks and prizes in the Recreation Room, and a raffle drawing! Joyful Noise hosts this free annual event for families and the community as a way to share our appreciation and to celebrate April's "The Month of the Young Child". It is always a great night of fun and fellowship!

This year's raffle (with proceeds going to fund future events), is offering up two awesome prizes:  a giant goody basket, filled with products and family activities donated by local businesses (last year's basket was valued at over $400!), OR a fire truck ride for 3 during this winter's Jingle Bell Parade. Raffle tickets are on sale beginning Monday, April 9 through the night of the carnival! Tickets are $2.00 each, or 3 tickets/$5.00. Stop by the Joyful Noise office to purchase yours today! You don't need to be present to win. 

*Reminder:  Joyful Noise Childcare will be closing early at 5:00 the day of the carnival to allow our staff to set up for the festivities. Please pick up your child(ren) by or prior to 5:00. Thank you! 

We'll see you at the carnival 😁!

Pizza Plus Books 2018 is Coming!

Free books with no catch from Loutit Library and the Joyful Noise C-Fund!


Joyful Noise Christian Childcare’s C-Fund is ready to give away many brand new books to young readers at the fourth consecutive “Pizza Plus Books” event on Wednesday, March 14th from 4:30-6:30 p.m., in program rooms A and B at Loutit District Library in Grand Haven!

No registration is necessary for the book fair, which is open to the public and will offer free books to underserved children from infancy up through eight years of age. Attendees can also enjoy a free pizza dinner from Domino’s as well as access to other early childhood resources.

“One of my favorite parts of our yearly event are the storytellers that read to the kids,” said Amanda Butcher, lead teacher of Joyful Noise Christian Childcare’s two-year-old program. “Even though the book fair is really busy and exciting, the children are always excited to listen to a story.”

A 2005 High Scope learning study found that “the greatest amount of brain growth occurs between birth and age five” and that nearly all of the brain’s core structure has been formed by the age of just 3 years old. A strong foundation for literacy is developed at this time, and access to age-appropriate books is an essential part of that groundwork and a cornerstone of the Joyful Noise C-Fund’s Love of Literacy program mission. The C-Fund seeks to connect young children and families with not only high-quality books but also early childhood resources to support lifelong learning.

Joyful Noise Celebrates 20 Years of Service!

Joyful Noise four-year-olds build a tower with 20 blocks to represent the center’s service milestone!

Joyful Noise is Celebrating our 20th Year of Service!

The Oxford Dictionary defines the word “score” as twenty years. Said to have originated from a shepherd counting sheep—one through twenty—a notch would be made in shepherd' stick so that a shepherd could safely lead the flock.
As Joyful Noise enters its twentieth year of service, that term couldn’t be more appropriate. The center has been happy to shepherd little lambs from the earliest moments of their lives through the days of preschool wonderment and joy. From learning to crawl to writing letters, the preschool and daycare has fostered growth in young students and enjoyed watching them grow while they create wonderful bonds with their fellow classmates.
Joyful Noise’s impact isn’t just limited to the students who come and go each day in our building; our outreach to community youth through events and service benefits many young children who might never attend our program. Members of the community smile when they see us coming down the sidewalk with our knotted ropes each day and our childcare center is well-known throughout the area as a hub for laughter, early childhood support, and lifelong family memories.

We would like to thank all of our parents, First Presbyterian Church of Grand Haven for their continued support, and, of course, the amazing children that make our rewarding job possible and so very necessary. We look forward to twenty more years of leading our little lambs to successful learning and joyful play.
