Our Successful Curriculum

JamaJaz is excited about the success of its customized curriculum for the children! Daily art, circle time, and other activities revolve around the monthly themes. On a monthly basis, we introduce to the children 2 letters, numbers, shapes, and colors. Some of our themes include “going” to the Circus, the Zoo, and the Park. We will “visit” these places in our imagination through books, art, and other activities.
*** JamaJaz is partnering with JAMaROO Kids. On a weekly basis, we will have visiting teachers to teach them about movement and music. Teachers use music to address the physical, emotional, cognitive, and social needs of our children through interventions such as singing, listening, and playing instruments. JAMaROO Kids specializes in developmentally appropriate Dance, Music, Yoga, Storytime & Art Classes for Young Children.***
