On September 3, 1985, Wee Care Learning Center first opened its doors. 

There were four teachers working half days.  Our very own Miss Diane and Miss Donna were there.

Its initial purpose was to provide child care for the children of the nurses and staff at Jefferson Memorial Hospital.  It quickly grew into much more and became an integral part of the entire community.  Wee Care added infant services about a year later as our enrollment continued to grow. 

The initial building was part of St. Pius X High School which we occupied for 11 years. 

At that time, Wee Care moved into a new facility next to Crystal Oaks Residential Care Center.  We were still affiliated with the hospital at that time.

In May 2003, the hospital's vision changed and the community was at risk of losing Wee Care.   The current owners grasped that opportunity to make Wee Care even better than before.  In October of 2003, a brand new, state of the art building was designed and constructed specifically to serve as the new home for Wee Care.

In 2010, Wee Care completed another expansion which resulted in the Learning Center that you see and enjoy today.

As our facility and capabilities have grown, we have taken great pride in knowing that we are what we are because of our dedicated teachers and staff, engaged students, and supportive parents.  As our future unfolds, we will continue to prove that Wee Care is not just our name,  it is our mission!
