Key School
The Key-Wee through Kindergarten programs at Key School offer children aged two years, eight months and up a happy and enriching school experience in a secure and caring environment. With the highest priority placed on building self-confidence while developing the whole child, the program is implemented with the utmost attention to the needs, talents, and uniqueness of each individual. An integrated curriculum provides an introduction to a host of intellectual experiences that enhance each child’s understanding of, and appreciation for, the world. Key’s Pre-K 3 began their study of Germany on Monday with a very special video message from Herr Hannon, a friend of Pre-Kindergarten teacher Jackie Olson. Over the course of the next several weeks, the students will Skype with Herr Hannon ...as they learn more about Germany, its culture and traditions, and its language. The study will culminate with a traditional "Martinstag" celebration, honoring the kindness of St. Martin. All members of the class will perform classic German children's songs to commemorate the occasion. Pre-K 4 children are invited to embark on an After School Program journey that will build their global perspectives. Through interactive games, imaginary travel and cultural crafts, students enrolled in the Cultural Enrichment Activity will develop an understanding of the interconnectedness of our world community. Read More Key’s Kindergarteners are busily engaged with new interactive iPad applications that are reinforcing reading and math skills, while tapping into the students’ natural interest in, and facility with, technology. In September, Key technology integrator Nina Glime began introducing the students to the classroom iPads by providing them with opportunities to play with the available tools in several of the programs. Not surprisingly, the students displayed an extremely short learning curve and were eagerly working within minutes of picking up the devices—their creations were amazing! The students are now using a series of developmentally appropriate apps designed to support the work they are undertaking in the classroom.

We offer an educational program that utilizes developmentally appropriate practices that enhance the social, emotional, physical and intellectual development of each child. The college educated, certified teachers strive to create a fun, safe, respectful and Christian environment. We encourage parents to be actively involved in their child's education through volunteering at the center and participating in special events. While our website can provide you with an array of information there is nothing that compares to actually visiting one of our Center's. We have two locations to serve you in Edgewater: 1133 Carrs Wharf Road or 35 Mayo Road. Both centers offer the same programming, which includes foreign language, music, and physical education. PROGRAMMING Joy Kids Learning Center LLC is concerned with the overall development of children. We believe the first five years of a child's life are very important and we are committed to ensuring your child gets the best possible Early Childhood Education. Upon entrance to our Center we will use the Ages and Stages Questionnaire (ASQ-3tm) to assess your child's development. This helps us ensure that we individualize our curriculum to meet your child's specific needs. The InvestiGator Club curriculum is approved for use in preschool programs by the Maryland State Department of Education. We compliment our curriculum with additional programing like foreign language (Spanish), music, physical education, and a chapel program, offered through Joy Reigns Lutheran Church. We also believe in helping our children learn to live a healthy life and that is why we have joined the Let's Move Childcare! program. This means that our children spend at least 1 to 2 hours outdoors each day; eat healthy snacks which include vegetables and fruit; drink healthy beverages throughout the day; and rececive no television time. We feel confident that our program prepares children to enter elementary school.
