Any bike shop will have patch equipment. You need to deflate the tire and remove it from the wheel. See if there is a tube inside the tire. If so, the fix is easy: either purchase a new tube for the tire, or get a patch. Use modelling glue on the patch then press it continually on the hole on the tire for about five minutes until it is dry. Afterwards, re-insert the tube into the tire, reattach the tire to the rim and pump it back up

More than likely there's a leak, maybe small but enough to cause a flat.
As for tubes your local bike shop may carry the 12" or the 16" depending on the stroller make and model. Check the side of the tire to see if you can identify the size, if not the stroller manufacturer or the site should give you more information.
The tires with these jogging strollers come off fairly easily with any regular bicycle tire levers. Although it's possible to take them off by hand, if it's difficult any bicycle shop would carry standard bicycle tire levers. I personally recommend the life time warranty tire levers by Pedro. They are very strong and designed to take off some of the beefiest mountain bike tires.
It would also be good to have spare tubes. You can find bulk tire tubes on eBay for cheap!
Replacement tube may be more beneficial even though the fix/patch may be cheaper. If you live in an area that have varying climate, the patch along with the repaired tube can expand and contract and may cause small leak if not repaired properly.
Otherwise I would get the right size tube, most jogging strollers are either 12" or 16" tube inside and can be bought from your local bicycle store. With that, you'll need bicycle tire levers which can also be bought at the bike shop. Just about any type of tire levers will do. Of course I'm sure your bike shop can do this for you to possibly for free with a purchase of replacement tube!
gas stations or tire places can often help fix a bicycle tire-- why not a stroller tire? shoudlnt cost more than 5-10 bucks.
if just a slow leak, you can also try a can of fix-a-flat from the auto parts store-- pump it into your tire when somewhat deflated, walk it around to let the inside get coated with the material, and then inflate it to proper levels.
