Daycare Services at Jolly Tots, Too!
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.
The full day Kindergarten Program sets the stage for the higher-learning areas. During this stage of development, children are very active, curious, and eager to learn. They are much more cooperative and able to develop close friendships with their peers.

Jolly Tots, Too! On-Site Nurse
We are very proud of our on-site nurse Sue Rikk. She provides compassionate care to keep our young ones healthy at all times! Thus, we have a health and safety program that stands out among the crowd! When a Registered Nurse is on site to answer questions, it eases all 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!
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
The multicultural components at Jolly Tots Too 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. Therefore, we help increase the child's awareness of the people of other cultures. Every year Jolly Tots Too hosts a multicultural fair, where children experience different countries and cultures within our center.
Preschool with the 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.
In recognition of the need to involve parents with Jolly Tots Too, we encourage parent participation in their child's development. Parents can help out by joining the parent committee. The parent committee allows parents can can help with suggestions to make Jolly Tots Too a better daycare. 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.
