    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.

Childcare Development for Kids in Columbus Ohio

The original Jolly Tots daycare program was established for the purpose of providing safe, reliable child care for working families in Columbus and Gahanna. Our daycare has since successfully established creditability within the Columbus and Gahanna communities. Thus, delivering high-quality child-care services.

Music Appreciation for Columbus OH Children

We love to incorporate music throughout our program at Jolly Tots, Too! We feel that 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 preschool teacher that meets with each classroom to introduce new instruments and songs.

Language & Multicultural Program for Columbus OH Children

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. Our preschool and daycare 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 from Columbus OH can visit experience different countries throughout our center.

Infant Daycare Columbus OH

Our Infant Care programs are for children ages 6 weeks to 18 months. Infancy is a time for bonding, therefore, it is the most difficult time for both parent and child to be separated. An infant’s rapid growth requires energy and patience from the child-care provider. Although all stages of development are important, special emphasis is required during infancy as it is a time for the development of security and trust—a time when the attachment/bonding process takes place. Infants are cuddled, rocked, and loved. The infant stimulation program contributes to the physical, intellectual, and social maturation of each child. We are a daycare serving Columbus Ohio and the surrounding area, so you can conveniently drop off your infants at our child care center.

Toddler Daycare Columbus OH

Young toddlers are particularly curious about everything, which is why our toddler care program is designed to help them grow. Toddlers are exploring their power over the child care provider through obstinacy, temper tantrums, and negativism. During this stage, it is especially important to provide consistency in allowing choices, setting limits, and utilizing appropriate guidance methods. Columbus parents will be happy to know that we are providing nurturing consistency and support to toddlers. Thus enabling your child to understand expectations and meets their need for feelings of safety and security of our toddler care program.

Preschool Daycare Columbus OH

The preschooler is embarking on the age of discovery, inventiveness, curiosity, and development of behavior patterns. At this time, children are rapidly developing skills such as exploration of language and reason, and comprehension of symbols. Gentle guidance, structure, and encouragement assist them in accomplishing these tasks. Our preschool is also a convenient drive from Columbus and is perfect for both parents and kids.

Kindergarten Daycare Columbus OH

During Pre-Kindergarten children develop maturity and independence. Our child care providers offer a stimulating yet challenging environment. We designed the program to increase each child’s sense of self-esteem, self-concept, self-worth and sense of belonging. Hence, our goal is to help them form a strong cognitive basis for the school years to follow. Our Pre-Kindergarten curriculum has been designed to prepare children for the Kindergarten experience. The learning-center curriculum exposes children to basic concepts of education. As a result, math, science, music, language arts, multicultural, and writing skills are learned. Columbus parents can expect our classroom atmosphere to promote a child's interest and exploration needs. The Pre-Kindergarten classrooms are taught by elementary and early childhood educators.

The full day Kindergarten Program sets the stage for your child's 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. Their desire to be independent and assume responsibility makes them truly delightful little individuals. Curriculum exposure includes a variety of opportunities designed to meet the individual learning needs of each child. The teacher incorporates a combination of teaching methods, such as teacher-to- child or a group of children, child-to-child, and group cooperative experiences (learning centers). We are located in Gahanna, but conveniently serve Columbus Ohio parents and children. Jolly Tots Too! always provides a convenient child care service for busy parents passing through!
