JLU students love to learn. Our program provides a nurturing, developmentally-appropriate learning environment that recognizes individual strengths and interests. Children in all classrooms learn through exploration, encouraging creativity, and most importantly through play.
JLU students learn to love. Not only does the JLU program inspire your child to learn but our emphasis on Christian character and values encourage students to understand how loved and special they are, to love their classmates, honor their teachers and strive to make good choices. This Christ-centered focus makes the JLU educational curriculum unique in the Rochester area.
We take the safety of our students very seriously which is demonstrated through our bio-metric clock-in system at each entrance. All staff, parents, and authorized pick-up personnel must scan their fingerprint into our system to gain access into the building. Visitors to our center must sign in and be escorted through the center with a staff member.
Our teachers will not release any child into the care of someone not on your child’s authorized pick up list unless you have provided written permission to do so ahead of time.
All products used in our center are peanut and tree nut free. Our kitchen staff take all necessary precautions to meet the needs of our students with food allergies. Students with allergies will either be offered a substitute meal, or parents may provide meal components if necessary.
Each classroom is equipped with ingredient information for each of our food products in order to equip our teachers with the knowledge needed to provide the best care possible for the children in their classroom.

Our students benefit from having a large indoor gross motor room available to them throughout the day. This space is designed to allow the JLU teachers to work with students developmental goals, play structured games and work on balance and coordination all while having a fun playing! Our professionally equipped indoor play space makes JLU an ideal program for your child as they will still be able to play and exercise even throughout our cold winter months.

During the school year, JLU provies an opportunity for a monthly Parent's Night Out. A PNO allows our parents to register their JLU students (and their siblings) to spend the evening at the center with our staff where they will enjoy special activities, dinner and a end the night with a movie and snack. This is a fun night for kids and an opportunity for mom and dad to reconnect with a date or take a little time to themselves in any way they would like.
