Mary Lee Johnston Community Learning Center

What We Do

We serve children from six weeks to kindergarten age and their families, and have done so since 1934. Mary Lee Johnston Community Learning Center is committed to providing high quality, affordable child care and education programs based on the needs of our community.

Why We're Great

We love not only our children but their families and everything that makes them who they are. What we do is because of them. Our staff are not just employees, but more like a huge family, working together every day, and loving every second of it!

Why does your organization deserve community financial support?

We work our hardest to make childcare (which can exceed a mortgage payment for some families) as affordable as possible. We want families that NEED to work to be able to do just that, go to work and leave knowing their children are left in great care.
