For Making A Critical Difference For Young Children And Families In Rhode Island

Music & Art Spark Little Imaginations

Music & Art Spark Little Imaginations

Your child has a well-rounded experience with fun enrichment activities like music and creative movement. Open-ended art activities give children a chance to explore their talents, and literacy projects promote self-expression and creativity.

Children Run And Slide In An Inviting Outdoor Space

Kids sprint, jump, balance, climb and explore nature out in the fresh air with friends. Whether outside or in the colorful indoor space, a design based on the Early Childhood Environment Rating Scale® (ECERS) keeps them active and safe.

Museum Visits Put A New Lens On Learning

Exciting field trips expose your child to new worlds, approaches, and concepts. Adventures like fruit picking, museum visits, and trips to the fire station keep your child engaged, and safe on-site visits add excitement to the school day.

Restricted Access Means Your Child Is Safe With Us

Your child is safe and secure with measures in place like restricted access controls that require visitors to buzz in. Plus, tall fences for playground privacy and security cameras throughout the premises give you peace of mind.

I enrolled my Super spoiled, clingy son at 18mos. When I say this place is Awesome, I mean it with everything in me. From the staff to the beautiful children 💜 I engaged with them all every morning and evening. The students there LOVE ME!!! I’d given feedback on teachers negative & positive over the 8years my children were enrolled and never have been given a cold shoulder. They would not only listen but put action into play immediately “I LOVE IT HERE.”

Look no further! Do not underestimate this place. The staff is superb! The director Jenny along side her husband are amazing owners running this place. My 3yr old son loves her! I mean how could you not? She is super sweet and really makes you & your little one feel welcome at all times! You can tell they really care. A little shout out to MsVail who created an actual bond with him as head teacher to make all at ease for us both! Thank you to all at Joyful Hearts.

We appreciate the daily feedback we receive about our daughter's schedule via mobile app. We especially enjoy that she is given a variety of developmentally appropriate indoor and outdoor activities including storytelling, singing, playing house, and multi-sensory fun. We LOVE that she has messy fun with paints, dough, and other materials at Joyful Hearts, because then we don't have to clean it up! 🙂 The teachers interact beautifully with the children ALL day.

I have two children that attend Joyful Hearts. They are very happy and thrilled to be there everyday. My son who has autism loves the staff and all of the super fun activities that are planned everyday. They are very well qualified to help any child with special needs as I have seen it for my very eyes. The staff and school are like no other. I love this school.

We love it here! The staff is super friendly and always greet my daughter by name. My 3 year old has days where she is super clingy and doesn't want to leave my side, which makes it super tough to leave her, but the staff here always helps me out and when I call to check on her, reassures me that she is fine. It's so awesome to have a place we can bring her that we trust and where she likes to come play and learn. I definitely recommend this place!

This day care is the most wonderful gift I could have received being a single mom it’s tough with the everyday routine with my changing work schedule. They are very flexible with hours of care I needed and were very affordable. My two children have been at this school for two years and I love the staff, the atmosphere and just the plain love that this school brings. I know everyone else will enjoy it too.
