School Age

At Joyland we offer a before and after school program, a days off school program, as well as a summer program for children in grades Kindergarten through 2nd.  Our school follows the Dublin City School calendar and provides daily transportation to Thomas Griffith Elementary, Indian Run Elementary and area Hilliard Schools (based on the needs of parents). We offer flexible hours and rates to accommodate families with various schedules.

During the summer we offer a full day camp, an exciting alternative for school age children. Our program provides a balanced schedule of active, learning and quiet activities. In addition, we provide weekly field trips to reinforce a lesson taught or just for fun as well as water days, movie days, a gym class, walking field trips to a nearby park and various other special events. Some of our field trips include: Zoombezi Bay, Franklin Park Conservatory, Cosi and the Columbus Zoo. We have a theme for each week of our summer camp. We provide all the food your child will need throughout the day including breakfast, lunch and afternoon snack. A schedule is provided below that outlines our meal times as well as our academic/learning times.
