Mission

Just Like Home Children’s Centers mission is to provide for families a safe and nurturing Christian environment for their children. Our staff works to develop the “whole child” by meeting the physical, intellectual, emotional, spiritual and social needs of each child in our care.

History

Just Like Home Children’s Center began as an effort of Sheila and Rhonda Holmes, two sisters determined to start a daycare rooted in Christian theology and dedicated to helping families raise their children equipped to succeed. After initial licensing standards were met, the daycare opened for business in August, 1994, where there were few facilities to care for children. Located at the corner of Princeton Road and Liberty Fairfield Road, the daycare took space in the Faith Community Church building and ran Monday through Friday.

January 1, 2002, the church became the official owner/operator of the daycare. Just Like Home Children’s Center went from being a for-profit limited liability corporation to a non-profit ministry of Faith Community Missionary Church. Pastor John (Jack) Goss became pastor of the on July 1, 2001. With 23 years as a teacher and a Master Degree in Education, Pastor Jack is the current director of the daycare as well as senior pastor of the church.
