The welfare of the children is the most important aspect of operating a childcare center. For this reason, it is extremely important to know the full background of any person who comes into contact with the students. Each person employed by Joyful Noise, Inc. undergoes a complete background check prior to employment. Only after all of the background checks have been completed and acceptable, will the person then be considered for employment at Joyful Noise Child Development Center.
