Just some of the highlights
In recognition of the need to involve parents with Jolly Tots Too, we encourage parent participation in their child’s development. Through the parent committee, they can help with suggestions to make Jolly Tots the child care center of choice. It is because of this committee that parents, staff, and children now enjoy social events together, parents feel more informed through the communication board and new ideas can be easily heard. In only a short time, we have already shown many successes with the parents committee. We encourage everyone to be a part of it, as no part is too small. Since starting the committee, we’ve planned a picnic, a trip to Circle S Farms, a parents’ night out, a carnival, this website, and an upcoming bowling night.
Language/ Multicultural Program
These multicultural components are designed to expose the children to a variety of cultural experiences, traditions, and foreign languages. Children receive instruction in Spanish and Sign Language each week. These lessons are directly related to the topics studied through the weekly curriculum and increase the child’s awareness of the people whose culture they are studying. Every year we also have a multicultural fair where children visit different countries throughout our center.
We love to incorporate music throughout our program at Jolly Tots, Too! Music can help us teach new concepts, encourage verbal language skill development as well as literacy. We do this by singing songs and dancing which promotes large motor development. Once a month we have a special music teacher that meets with each classroom to introduce new instruments and songs.
