We Support You So That Your Family Can Be Their Best

Preschool & Child Care Center Serving East Providence & Pawtucket, RI

Thank you for stopping by and welcome! I’m Jennifer DeLoach, owner and director of Joyful Hearts Childcare Center.

Since the age of 14 when I started my first job in childcare, I knew it was the most important job in the world. Driven by my passion for early education, I became a lead teacher and earned my Early Childhood degree.

A few years later, I met my wonderful husband Dennis here in Providence, RI. I relocated from Boston and Dennis and I started a successful home daycare in 2008. With Dennis’ degree in business and my 13 years of experience in childcare, we had the combined expertise to expand the business, first to our beautiful church location on Cottage Street in 2011, then to East Providence in 2020 and finally to Newport Ave in 2021. In the meantime, we expanded our family and now our beautiful daughter Zoe enjoys Joyful Hearts as much as we do.

Come and visit us; we’d love to welcome you to our community.
