Compassionate Child Care Service
We provide nurturing educational child care service throughout Columbus for infants, toddlers, preschoolers and kindergarteners!

Our Daycare Services

For over 20 years Jolly Tots has provided outstanding child care services to the of Gahanna, New Albany, and the surrounding Columbus region. At our daycare center, we value the strong leadership, dedication and encouragement from our teachers! It is also the trust and support from parents that bring JTT full circle in being able to provide such a wonderful learning environment for all of our children. We are located centrally between Gahanna and New Albany and offer infant care, toddler care, preschool education and kindergarten education.

Lowest Teacher to Student Ratios in Columbus

Our low teacher/student ratios (best in the Columbus area!) give the opportunity for more individual attention, better supervision, the ability to learn from a variety of teachers, and the comfort of knowing that your children are in a safe environment.

On-Site Nurse

Daycare Nurse

We are very proud of our on-site nurse Sue Rikk who provides compassionate care to keep our young ones healthy at all times! We have a health and safety program that stands out among the crowd, when a Registered Nurse is there to answer questions and ease the medical concerns. It is also important that our teachers practice healthy and safe protocols to keep the spread of germs and illness down inside the classroom. Our entire staff is educated in CPR, First Aid, Communicable Disease, and Child Abuse/Neglect. Read more about Sue by clicking on her photo!

Music Appreciation

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.

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.

Parents Committee

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.

Jolly Tots, Too Associates

Our child care providers are selected based on their education, dependability, trustworthiness, child care experience, and ability to nurture young children. Personal and professional references and personal background checks are carefully screened. We maintain consistent child and child care provider interaction to promote continuity and enhance each child's sense of development and well-being. We takes pride in the longevity of our child care providers, as many of them have been with us for over 10 years, proving our dedication to commitment and consistency throughout our daycare center.
