Rasheedah McEady Youth Enrichment Progam (RMYEP) is a family learning center, named after our Aunt who co-owned the Jump for Joy Centers with Founder Ramona Jones. The childcare centers were originally started in the home of Ramona Jones over 30 years ago. Her love for children and success in providing a family atmosphere soon pushed her to move into a building that would allow her to service and care for more families and children. Due to expansion and the desire to reach more families, she was joined by her sister Rasheedah McEady who became her business partner. It was their mission statement “To provide quality childcare in the community keeping a family atmosphere for an affordable cost.” It was from here, after sitting under lessons of my mother, Ramona McEady-Jones, that after her desire to pull back from being a daycare owner, that I chose to pick up the family business and start a daycare of my own, named after the original co-owner, Rasheedah Mceady.
