Cheerful Home Spotlighted by The Quincy Area Chamber of Commerce


Welcome to our new and improved Cheerful Home Child Care & Early Learning Center website. Thank you to Vervocity Interactive for the wonderful work they did to make this website possible. As many of you know, our old website was quite outdated and was not serving the needs of our families, staff and community. With input from Cheerful Home families and staff and community leaders, we have revitalized our website with features that meet those needs. There is easy access to our monthly breakfast, lunch and snack menus at the top of every page. The parent center allows parents to view their children’s password protected classroom calendars and newsletters from anywhere they have internet access. This News & Events page will allow us to post center and community events, as well as relevant information and articles, for the benefit of the families at Cheerful Home. Our How to Help page gives many options on how people in our community and beyond can assist Cheerful Home in continuing to provide affordable, quality child care for the children in our community. One of the great things about this website is that it is dynamic and can be improved at any time. If you have any suggestions on how we can further improve our website, please stop in and let us know or email us at
