A Place of Hope and Happiness
  Montessori Zoo Trip Montessori Student Alphabets Activity  


The purpose of the Jonestown Family Center is to improve the general welfare of people in Jonestown and the surrounding area. The Family Center strives to increase educational and health opportunities through its programs.

The Jonestown Family Center follows a Christian philosophy, focusing on respect for each person as a child of God. All programs strive for the full development of the human person. We believe that education must be holistic -- mind, body and spirit.

The Jonestown Family Center for Education and Wellness is a separately incorporated sponsored ministry of the Sisters of the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary.

Thanks to all of you who help us during the year! Gratefully, Sr. Teresa and the staff at the Jonestown Family Center.

Dear Friends,

Thank you to all of you who continually donate, especially around Christmas. Because of you we were able to give many children warm clothes, educational toys, sweet treats, and books. We had so many donations that we were able to share with Head Start, Jonestown Elementary School pre-school, and another child care in town. God is good!

Thanks, too, for those of you who donate through our PayPal account.

This spring we will host Baby University again, a nine-week class for parents focusing on issues of concern: potty training, discipline, nutrition, child abuse, early learning, etc. It was successful last year and parents have asked for it again. Thanks to MGM Grand Foundation and our friends from St. John Vianney Catholic Church on Vashon Island Washington, my sister Jenny’s parish, for supporting our young parents and families.

Montessori and toddler children were so happy to come back after their two week vacation over Christmas. Most of the two year olds can identify colors and count to ten. Montessori children are starting to identify and read three letter words. The staff is working hard to get the children ready for the next phase of their educational journey.

For those of you who shop on Amazon, the Family Center is now a designated charity on Amazon Smile. Amazon donates 0.5% of the purchase price of eligible products to a registered charity. Just go to , list the Jonestown Family Center as your charity, and shop away!

Gratefully, in Christ,
