Joseph H. Messina Children’s Center

The Joseph H. Messina Children’s Center provides parents with a safe, nurturing environment for their little ones. Children are encouraged to participate in the learning process to practice good observation skills and grow their love for learning. The center’s community garden produces fresh vegetables, which is a great learning opportunity to teach young minds about nutrition, healthy food, teamwork, and sustainability. We also offer free VPK child care, available both before and after school.
