ABOUT JLS Educational Childcare Team


Our goal at JLS Educational Childcare Team is to help each child maximize their potential and prepare them for the future.

We are committed to providing quality educational programs and experiences that enhance learning, creativity and problem solving, all promoting consideration of others and teaching children to respond in a positive manner.

Our Story began in 2004 with the construction of Jacob's Ladder #1 in Centerville, which opened in 2005.  Our desire to provide a quality Christian learning environment to our community was important to us.  God has blessed us with the addition of Jacob's Ladder #2 in Bonaire  and then Sunshine Children's Academy.  We have been able to continue teaching Bible stories and praying with our young children.  

We do not advertise and are hidden away (we are "hidden gem" of Houston County).  We want to be able to provide quality care while trying to keep our prices low.  We are locally owned and operated, our team is not part a big box corporation.  Our new website and JLS Educational Childcare Team name allows us to streamline information to and from our customers.

Thanks for stopping buy our website,  please stop by and visit any one of the centers today!
