Philosophy & Approach

School Philosophy

From the Director:

We do have a pretty structured enviornment and encourage all children to participate in the daily activities as these are designed to teach them while having fun. Our older classrooms are preparing them for gradeschool and will therefore have group discussions, teacher intructed lessons, group and individual activities. Typically in the am centers children go through each center in a group of 2 or 3. The afternoons are more relaxed and children are able to have free choice with their centers. We encourage child questions to teach what they are interested in while incorporating our weekly themes.

Day in the Life

General School Mission

Jolly Tots Too provides a fun, safe and educational enviornment through the loving care of trained teachers and a proven curriculum with 20 years of experience. We believe in exposing children to a variety of ideas/ lessons through an endless number of ways, giving children the opportunity to learn as they are ready. Jolly Tots has a preschool curriculum throughout the center which uses weekly themes and special days of the month to teach new objectives in all subject areas.

A Typical Day

Each day is special with new ideas and concepts to learn, but we believe in a structured day with rountines that children know and expect. We start with a circle time which will introduce the lessons for the day and then split into smaller groups to work in centers. Every day will have a special activity of library, fitness, sign language, spanish or share day. We have outside or muscle room time in the morning and afternoon with a second circle/ center time in the afternoon. For our little ones, we have an infant stimulation program which also will promote growth in different developmental areas. All children are given tender, loving care throughout the day
