Our Goals

Joshua's Play Place Early Learning Center desires to be regarded as the premier center for children’s services in Prince George's County

 To do that we need to look beyond the limits of our current facilities and staff to the real needs of the children in the county. We need to look at our current programs to insure that they are meeting and exceeding the expectations of those who rely on them.

Goal 1

Increase agency capacity to identify children with special needs and provided appropriate services to meet their needs

Goal 2

We are proud of our staff and the work they do. We want to continue the tradition of committed, qualified, professional staff. We want to give them all the tools they need to do their job.

Goal 3

At the heart of our program is the sensitivity to families. The whole child includes the family and the extended family who nurture and help the child each step of the way. We must continue to give families the tools they need to work with their children.
