Why Joni's

Why Joni's

Families choose Joni’s Child Care & Preschool for our NAEYC Accreditation, Academic Curriculum, Flexible Scheduling, Friendly Responsive Staff, Open-Door Policy, Affordable Rates, No Contracts, and much more. Joni's is Family Owned and Operated and we've been in business for 20 years. You've come to the right place !
Curriculum Joni’s prides itself on an academic curriculum that challenges children to reach their highest potential. Each age group targets key developmental milestones in language, writing, math, science and creativity. By creating a “Step Approach” to learning, skills are acquired in a natural progression. Children graduate from Joni’s programs with academic confidence and an excitement for the learning process. Because all Joni’s centers are NAEYC (National Association for the Education of Young Children) accredited, you know that they have been nationally recognized for quality of staff, programming and interactions. The experience is topped-off by a series of extra-curricular programs that include martial arts, soccer, swimming, dance, foreign language, computers and much more.
Communication The staff, managers and owners of Joni’s know that communication is critical to meeting the individualized needs of each family. Starting at the initial tour and continuing throughout our years together, we strive to maintain open, honest and informative interactions. All Joni’s programs maintain an “Open- Door Policy”, encouraging families to visit and participate in all areas of a day’s events. Families receive daily written and verbal updates from the teachers. Formal conferences are offered in January and in May each year. Informal conferences are available any time by request. Menus, newsletters, and calendars of events are provided monthly. This information can be e-mailed directly to you along with invitations, reminders and personal requests. Families can follow us on Facebook.
Collaboration At Joni’s we know that raising children is unique in every family. We work hard to understand the needs, preferences and goals of each family. Whether it is the timing of potty training or the daily separation process, we work with families to determine the best approach to each situation. Even weekly schedules are unique. Joni’s has broad appeal with professionals who have “rotating” schedules. Nurses, firefighters and pharmacists can submit a monthly schedule and pay only for those days. If your child attends part-time and needs to come more often (even temporarily)…that is never a problem. If you’ve begun working part-time and need to reduce your child’s care…that is never a problem. You are never bound by a contract. Joni’s believes that you need to make decisions based upon the needs of your family, not your childcare center.
Community Joni’s Child Care & Preschool maintains an ongoing commitment to stay connected to the communities that have contributed to their success. Our programs seek to patronize local professionals, businesses and entertainers. We encourage families and friends to share their jobs, hobbies and interests with our students. We celebrate the successes of our alumni. We strive to create and maintain programs that are a pleasure to share with our neighbors including support for local youth athletic programs, food and clothing banks, the local libraries and varied charities that directly benefit our neighborhoods.
Company Established in 1994, Joni’s Child Care & Preschool is a family owned and operated company with 5 centers located throughout CT in Burlington, Canton, Farmington and Hartford. The centers collectively employ more than 80 employees and serve nearly 500 families. The centers, while unique in their own personalities, offer a consistent level of quality in programming, staff and flexibility. Joni’s balances the structure and resources of a corporation with the family feel of our environments and staff.
Cost Joni’s knows that childcare can be expensive. The center tuitions are always competitive with industry prices, and we are often more affordable than our direct competitors. We offer flexible options that allow you to create the schedule that your family needs at the most reasonable prices and there is never a contract. We offer discounts for siblings, preferred employers and referrals. But price is only one part of the consideration. Joni’s pledges to offer the highest quality of care and programming that will make every penny well spent. 
* All 5 of the Joni’s Child Care & Preschool centers are accredited by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC). This is a rigorous set of standards beyond those required by the State of Connecticut. A nationally trained team of inspectors spend several days in each program reviewing all aspects of the curriculum, teacher qualifications, interactions, communications and management. It takes several years to complete the accreditation process and then must be maintained through annual reporting systems, unannounced visits and emerging standards. Learn more about NAEYC here...
