The Joyful Noise Committee 

Welcome to the Joyful Noise Committee at Presbyterian Church of Morris Plains, NJ – the heart of our Christian Preschool and Daycare Center. Our committee is dedicated to creating a nurturing and uplifting environment for children to grow spiritually, socially, and academically. At Joyful Noise, we believe in fostering a sense of community and joy in every child's educational journey.

As a vital part of the Presbyterian Church of Morris Plains, our committee is committed to upholding Christian values and providing a foundation for children to develop a love for learning. We strive to create an atmosphere where children can explore, discover, and express themselves in a safe and supportive setting.

Our committee members, including dedicated individuals from the Facilities Committee, Interim Directors, Daycare Supervisor, Nursery School Supervisor, Communications Coordinator, and three parent members, work collaboratively to ensure that Joyful Noise remains a place where faith, education, and community intersect harmoniously.

The Facilities Committee ensures that our physical space is conducive to a positive learning experience, while our Interim Directors oversee the overall operation of Joyful Noise, maintaining a seamless connection with the values of the Presbyterian Church of Morris Plains.

Our committed Daycare Supervisor and Nursery School Supervisor play pivotal roles in creating age-appropriate curricula that engage and inspire children, nurturing their holistic development.

The Communications Coordinator keeps our community informed about the latest happenings at Joyful Noise, fostering a strong sense of connection among parents, staff, and the church community.

We are proud to have three dedicated parent members who bring a valuable perspective to our committee, ensuring that the voices of our families are heard and considered in the decision-making process.

At Joyful Noise, we are not just a preschool and daycare; we are a community that celebrates the joy of learning and growing in faith. Join us in creating a joyful noise that echoes the love and warmth of our Christian community. For more information, feel free to reach out to our committee chair or other members listed below.
