Kids still talking about their preschool experience today!

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.

Jolly Tots Too is one of the best preschools for New Albany, Ohio students!

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!!

My grand daughter loves Jolly Tots!

The staff was absolutely amazing!

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 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.!

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 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.

It's tough to pick a day care but coming here was a pretty easy decision. The place is stimulating for our two kids, is safe, and we have no concerns with coming here.

The older kids have some great educational opportunities, including Spanish and sign language, among others.

The staff, including teachers, are great. They care about the kids - they kids all are in great moods going home after a good day. We consider ourselves lucky to have found a good place for our kids.
