MSDWT Calendar, August - May

6:30am - 6:00pm

JELCC Child Care Center is a licensed and inspected child care facility located in the Hilltop Developmental Preschool building.  We offer child care with a developmentally appropriate play-based preschool curriculum. We also offer a nutrition program overseen by the North Central food services professionals. Children receive two nutritious snacks and a delicious hot lunch.  Children with food allergies are provided with special menus.


Our school year is designed to provide child care to teachers and staff of Washington Township Schools. (We are open on teacher workdays, for instance, when students normally are not at school.)  Although primarily founded to provide child care for MSDWT staff, we do open up enrollment to the public after Labor Day.

Our highly skilled and experienced classroom teachers also serve as mentors for high school Education Careers students who intern in our classrooms.  Teachers and interns must have an updated physical examination, background check, and TB test yearly. Teachers with us also must complete 12 hours of professional development with a variety of early childhood education organizations yearly.


If you have any questions, please see our FAQs below or contact the Director, Cathleen Triplett at 317-259-5458 x43015.

We look forward to working with your child!
