Name: The Joy School. Descripton:The original Joy School in Logan Utah offers an exciting and constructive curriculum especially designed by parenting experts Richard and Linds Eyre and Ruth Eyre (who started it all!) for the purpose of giving young children, ages 3-6, a foundation of joy, thus helping prepare them for a happy, succesful life. We believe all young children inherently express many kinds of joy, such as the joy of curiousity or the joy of honesty and candor. We help to preserve and enhance these natural joys in the children through our lessons as well as make children aware of other types of joy such as the joy of the earth or the joy of sharing and service. Over the course of more than forty years of preparing children for kindergarten and a happy life, we have developed proven methods for developing a positive self image and self confidence, creativity, relationship skills (so needed in today's world!), independence, a love of learning,etc. Our kindergarten readiness curriculum, which is a part of every day's learning, includes pre-reading and pre-math skills, science fun, arts and crafts and books, books. books! After-school kindergarteners, who can benefit greatly from the Joy School curriculum, are welcomed in the afternoon group along with our 4-5 year olds. "Oh boy, I've got JOY!"
