Joyful Noise will be operating a New Jersey State licensed first grade program that is designed to effectively prepare children to enter the second grade. The children will follow a carefully prepared curriculum of academic skills to develop their cognitive readiness as well as their social, emotional, physical, and spiritual development. The First Grade curriculum will be taught from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM, five days a week. Parents may also choose a full day schedule which includes before and/or after school care. We will have one first grade class which will be taught by our experienced teacher, Jennifer Valdez. She is excited to teach this age group and is committed to educating and developing the entire child completely prepared to enter a private or public school second grade.
