About Us

For more than 16 years, the founders of A Joyful Noise Childcare™, have been positively impacting the lives of children by developing and implementing innovative care and early education programming in the inner city of Milwaukee, WI. Starting in 2003, with a family location, A Joyful Noise Childcare has built its  foundation on five key educational and care principles: Safety, Love, Cognitive, Physical, and Social; which has labeled us as #The Elite.

Meet our Owner, Mr. Marquis! He comes from a long history of Childcare reaching back 16 years ago.  He is the original founder of A Joyful Noise Childcare! Mr. Marquis holds a large background of business and a passion for making a difference in children’s lives.  Always on the go, Mr. Marquis continues to think of ways he can help shape our staff in making them THE BEST of the BEST for our parents.  As a volunteer, Mr. Marquis coaches youth basketball for many years and has even won several championships!

“It’s not about the money with me, it’s about making a difference in our children’s lives that may not have the support from family they need in order to be successful!”

–Mr. Marquis


Mrs. Rachel is Mr. Marquis’ better half.  With a Bachelors of Arts in Communication & Journalism and Master’s Degree in Business Science Management, she is always finding better ways we can continuously improve our staff and center on a daily basis.  Mrs. Rachel has a huge desire of giving our parents more than what they expect as well as supporting her staff so that our youth is prepared for school and life when leaving A Joyful Noise Childcare! She believes,

“Going over and beyond for our families is necessary!” In addition, “Having a strong staff along side of me is a true blessing! Giving agape love to our staff is mandatory, I love them!”
