AJN Enrichment

At A Joyful Noise Childcare Center, we believe that every child beginning at birth deserves a chance to thrive, irrespective of their socioeconomic status. Our mission is centered on enhancing the overall wellbeing of children in underprivileged areas, focusing on comprehensive health, wellness, and the prevention of childhood obesity, diabetes, and other diet-related illnesses. 


Our goal is not only to educate, but to empower families to make healthier choices that pave the way for a brighter future.


The CDC informs us that, “most people in the United States don’t eat a healthy diet and consume too much sodium, saturated fat, and sugar, increasing their risk of chronic diseases. For example, fewer than 1 in 10 adolescents and adults eat enough fruits or vegetables. In addition, 6 in 10 young people aged 2 to 19 years and 5 in 10 adults consume at least one sugary drink on any given day. (, 2024)

Our long term program goals include helping children

Our enrichment initiative is designed to address these challenges head-on through a multifaceted approach:

  • Educational Workshops: Interactive sessions for children and their families, focusing on the importance of nutrition, understanding food labels, and the benefits of physical activity.

  • Access to Healthy Foods: Partnering with local farms and markets to provide access to fresh, nutritious food options.

  • Fitness and Activity Programs: Organized sports, dance, and other physical activities tailored to engage children in fun, active lifestyles.

  • Health Screenings and Support: Regular health checks and support for managing or preventing health issues related to poor nutrition and lifestyle.

Understanding the Challenge

Children in underprivileged communities, especially in Milwaukee County face a higher risk of developing health issues such as obesity, diabetes, iron deficiency, heart health, behavior issues and other chronic illnesses due to a combination of poor nutrition, lack of access to healthy foods, and inadequate physical activity. These challenges are compounded by socio-economic factors that limit their access to resources necessary for a healthy lifestyle.

Together, We Can Close the Gap

Building on the foundation of our current childcare center, we aim to enrich the lives of children and families in underprivileged areas by fostering environments that promote health, wellness, and education. With your support, we can bridge the gap, ensuring that every child has the opportunity to lead a healthy, fulfilling life.
