The Galaxy Pre-Kindergarten Classroom

Kindergarten Care - Galaxy

Our Goals for The Galaxy Pre-K

We encourage independence and responsibility in multiple ways from zipping their own coats, to getting their own lunches out and ready. This Pre-K room is designed to get your child ready for Kindergarten. The daily routine is a nice combination of preschool play meets real school! We also try to incorporate more “real world” experiences for the kids. We learn the states and all their capitals, we have a Homecoming week ending with a big dance, we focus on recycling and ways to help the environment and more!

Our Approach to Teaching Pre-K in the Galaxy

Kindergarten Galaxy

We do a daily morning circle that will review a variety of things-your child’s phone number and address, numbers, letters/letter sounds, common words, calendar (which reviews days of the weeks, months, yesterday/today/tomorrow), weather, and many other things.

Sign Language and Foreign Language

The language education continues with our Sign Language and Spanish teacher coming once a week. We also integrate the language practice throughout the day.

Kindergarten Care - Galaxy

Our Goals for Pre-K in the Desert

This Pre-K room is designed to get your child ready for Kindergarten. This class is taught by a certified Kindergarten teacher. The Desert can also be a 2nd Kindergarten classroom when our census needs it. We encourage independence and responsibility in multiple ways from zipping their own coats, to getting their own lunches out and ready. The daily routine is a nice combination of preschool play meets real school!

Our Approach to Teaching Pre-K in the Desert

Kindergarten Desert

We do a writing/art activity every day using your child’s own art box they are responsible to keep track of. We practice writing letters (uppercase and lowercase), numbers, words that correlate with the letter or theme of the week. Our art projects will also relate to the theme. A lot of our art projects are designed to let the kids have an imagination and create whatever they would like while still following the curriculum. We also try to incorporate more “real world” experiences for the kids. We learn the states and all their capitals, we have a Homecoming week ending with a big dance, we focus on recycling and ways to help the environment and more!

Sign Language and Foreign Language

The Desert Pre-K also has language education featuring a Sign Language and Spanish teacher coming once a week. We also integrate the language practice throughout the day.

The Jungle – Full Day Kindergarten Program

Kindergarten Care - Galaxy

Kindergarten Subjects in the Jungle

We have a wonderful and very unique Kindergarten program with over 15 years of success. By offering a full day we are able to teach so much more information during a time when children are craving the knowledge. We cover the following subjects throughout the school year: Mathematics, Social Studies, Health, Art, Science, Physical Education, Music, Social Etiquette, Foreign Language, Sign Language, Computer Science and Book Publishing.

Our Kindergarten Teacher Ratio and Hours

Kindergarten is taught by certified teachers and will follow a 1:16 teacher to student ratio. The school day is from 8:30am – 2:30pm, but will also include the wrap around care from 6:45am – 6:30pm.

Kindergarten Field Trips

Kindergarten The Jungle

An additional opportunity for learning is provided within our curriculum through our field trips. Our classes visit COSI, the fire station, the fruit farm, and the Columbus Zoo. Students learn and retain so much through hands on experience that this is always one of the favorite components of the program.

Kindergarten Graduation At the end of the school year our Kindergarten class will celebrate with a picnic at the park with our parents. The following day we have one of the highlights of our Kindergarten program: our “formal” graduation ceremony held in June. Students will wear caps and gowns as they present a program including so many of the things they have learned throughout the year. After they have received their diplomas individually, everyone celebrates with cake and a party.

The teachers have become part of our family!

The JTT teachers have become part of our family! We instill a lot of trust in these teachers and they continue to amaze us!! They are hard working and clearly love what they do. Our boys LOVE JTT which makes it so much easier to focus at work every day knowing they're in good hands. The on-site nurse is a huge bonus!!

Gahanna daycare helped develop my kids into better people

Both my kids went to daycare at Jolly Tots. They did not just take care of our kids, they helped develop them into the amazing kids they are today. They were well prepared for entering school. They have many teachers that they still talk about to this day.

My grand daughter loves Jolly Tots!

My granddaughter goes to Jolly Tots and she has learned so much. She loves her teachers and all her friends.

Highly recommended with incredible teacher!

Both of our lil' kiddos goes here from day one since they were babies. All the staff here is amazing! I was debating if we should put my son in public kindergarten or here...We decided to have him stay....by far it was the best decision we've ever made. Ms. Amy who's been teaching over 20yrs here is incredible teacher. I see how she teaches them. Bottom line I "HIGHLY RECOMMEND"to any parents that wants the best for their kids to come here. Talk to Kelly the owner she is very organized & informative. The only thing I wish is that if Jolly Tots would go all the way up to High School I would be willing to pay private for both of my kiddos but unfortunately they only go up to kindergarten.....Best of luck where ever you go.!

Highly recommended child care center

We love JTT! It was an excruciating day when we had to leave our sweet 3-month-old girl when I went back to work. JTT did a great job making me feel good she was well taken care of and very loved! She continues to excel now turning 3, and JTT far exceeds my expectations for her lesson plan. Very involved teachers, great stimulation for the kids and great partnership with parents, makes this the very best in the area. A huge plus to have Nurse Sue on staff with the owner, Kelly. Most of the teachers have been there for a very long time too. Highly recommend!

Amazing Daycare in Gahanna Ohio!

There may be nothing tougher in one's entire existence than making the decision to leave a precious baby or child in the care of others. Most of us would much rather take care of our little ones ourselves, keeping them safe and secure and happy in our presence.When that's not possible, we thank heaven for a place like Jolly Tots Too. Kelly runs a tight ship and this place is amazing! Our daughter has been going here since 12 weeks of age and absolutely loves it. The power has been out this week and despite fun times with Mom and Dad, she's been hanging her head sadly, asking "I go school today? I go school today?" and talking about how much she misses her friends.As the other reviewers have stated, she's happy every day when I pick her up. She runs to me smiling at pick-up time and when I ask if she had a good day, she says "yes! I so happy!" She has also learned a TON here - stuff I know we never taught her. She's developmentally off the charts and I know the teachers at JTT have helped with that.Thanks, Kelly and staff at Jolly Tots Too for giving us parents a wonderful, fun, educational "home away from home" for our kids while we have to work.
