JAM Early Education Philosophy

JAM Early Education believes in providing a safe, nurturing, and choice-filled environment through children’s independence, exploration of their interests, and expression of their individuality. Our program follows the Reggio Emilia philosophy while teaching according to the brain development of children.

Our goal is to promote respect, individuality, kindness, independence, beauty, order, and a positive environment by incorporating the religious, economic, cultural, and educational diversity of children and families.

Kindergarten - 5th Grade

JAM Early Education educates children by giving them hands-on activities and real experiences, therefore children find meaning in the work they do, which increases their depth of learning. We teach children ideas starting with the simple idea (ex. putting on their shoes) and moving into the complex (ex. tying their own shoes). By teaching this way, we are creating an interest to know more about a topic and fully understand it.

Each child is recognized and valued as a unique individual with a capacity for growth and development. Each child is guided to develop in all areas; emotional, social, creative, and intellectual, by offering opportunities that are right for their current development.

All of our teachers go through principle-based child development training, CPR / First Aid / AED certifications and several other training’s to ensure the best care for your child. We support our teachers through ongoing training and mentorship throughout their employment.

We accept Brightpoint vouchers and offer multi-child discounts for full-time families. We offer assistance in the form of scholarships.

To apply for a scholarship, visit the Welcome Center and fill out an application. Scholarships are limited.
