Joyland Preschool curriculum is for the 22nd century.
It emphasizes the development of essential cognitive foundations and academic skills within a context of interesting, meaningful activities and a positive, supportive environment.
As a high quality, developmentally appropriate curriculum, Joyland's curriculum moves substantially beyond the debates that have characterized early childhood education and philosophy for a number of years.
Joyland Preschool's curriculum is designed to be appropriate for children of different learning abilities, including those who might be labeled gifted, those who might be labeled demographically at risk and in need of compensatory education, and those who are so typical as to be labeled normal.

School Reviews

  • Recommended August 30, 2014 - I attended this school when I was little and I thought it would be a great idea to send my two kids for summer school. Everything seemed great in the beginning but the last two days seem to turn sour. My 4-year-old daughter complained she was being isolated. My daughter was ordered to stay in the classroom by herself while the other kids played. The teacher told my daughter it was because her dad brought her in late when in fact he brought her in the same time each day. We confront this issue to the director who brought all the employees in the room. My daughter pointed the individual out and told the story herself. The director completely disregarded everything we said, defending her employees. Furthermore, she accused us of mental child abuse and that we would be reported to social services!! This angered us so much that we called the police. When we told her we were going to call the police she went ahead and did the same thing. Apparently she told the police we had a weapon so we were searched. Sure enough, no weapon. No action was taken and the officer advised us to also make a report to social services. I absolutely cannot believe the lies these people were making! Honestly, they seemed so nice and it seemed like such a great facility but we were fooled! I thought I did my homework and read all the reviews online but I don''t think parents understand the extent of this issue. They will fool you and pretend they are so nice. The individual mistreating my daughters seemed extremely nice and I just couldn''t believe my ears. My daughters are well-behave, shy, and respectful kids so this came to a surprise. Please do not take your child here. I had to learn the hard way. I have always been protective of my kids and regret taking my kids here. If you want to be accused of mental child abuse and have the cops called then this is the place to go. There is no option for me not to recommend this school. - Posted by Parent
