We opened our doors in September 2000. Our Christian-based center is state-licensed with a qualified teaching staff. We believe every child is a precious gift from God to be encouraged spiritually, emotionally, socially, physically, intellectually, and creatively.
What Children Learn
Joyful Noise Preschool is a family of children, teachers and parents who work and play together over the course of the nine-month school year. At each session, the children will participate in structured and unstructured activities.
The children will be introduced to the basic skills needed to be successful in kindergarten. These skills include (but are not limited to) recognition of letters and phonetic sounds, numbers and shapes, and
listening and comprehension. They will also develop a sense of time and order as they use the calendar to record days, months, and seasons. There will be time to explore rhythm and movement, music, nursery rhymes, finger plays, and games.
Daily devotions, snack time prayers, Bible stories and a curriculum infused with Christian values offer many opportunities for early spiritual growth.
What We Believe
At Joyful Noise Preschool, we believe that every child is worthy of respect and is a capable learner. We provide a Christian learning environment where children are nurtured cognitively, emotionally, physically and spiritually. Our program encourages children to become fully involved in each day’s activities and
provides a multitude of play-centered experiences that foster social development, creative expression, cognitive growth and world discovery.
