About Joyful Noises Preschool

Joyful Noises is a non-denominational preschool offering programs for children ages 15 months through 7 years of age. We are open Monday through Friday from 7:30 am-5:00 pm (summer hours may vary). Our most popular programs are 8:30-4:30 and 8:30-12:30, and families may enroll from 2-5 days. Extended hours are available and customized to the families' needs. We have four beautiful classrooms for children of the following ages: Toddlers - starting with our youngest 15-month-olds, Preschool 1 is a transition room for our oldest toddlers up to 3 years of age, Preschool 2 for the three-going-on-four-year-olds, and Pre-Kindergarten for children 4 years and older and not eligible for Kindergarten. These ages may vary by a few months based on the developmental needs and levels of children and groups.



Joyful Noises Preschool is a non-denominational preschool, serving as a ministry of the Congregational Church of Topsfield (U.C.C.). We instill Christian values and embrace the diversity, individuality and uniqueness of all children and families. Our enriching curriculum, genuine interactions and guided play opportunities develop the whole child, physically, socially, emotionally, cognitively, creatively, academically and spiritually through a developmentally appropriate curriculum.

We encourage creativity, curiosity, and exploration through hands-on activities allowing each child to develop individually at their own unique pace.

We provide care and education to all children regardless of their race, religion, cultural heritage, political beliefs, disabilities, national origin, sexual orientation, family systems and marital status.

We provide an opportunity for every child to develop at his or her own unique pace:

Physically: to develop the whole-child, their small and large muscles, their overall healthy growing bodies

Socially: to be able to play, communicate, cooperate, and negotiate with others of all culturally diverse backgrounds and abilities.

Emotionally: to develop confidence to express and understand oneself, through the development of a positive self-image.

Cognitively: to learn skills and apply knowledge for personal success, academic success, and to become contributing members to society.

Creatively: to explore and express oneself in open-ended, hands-on mediums, visually, dramatically, or linguistically.

Academically: to recognize, use, and interact with: language, literacy, science, technology, engineering, art and math (STEAM), all through developmentally appropriate practices and curriculum.

Spiritually: we foster sound Christian values throughout our programs.


Goals for Children:

To learn social skills, problem solving skills, communication skills and cooperation.

To learn respect for everyone's individuality and special needs, to accept and show kindness to all and to treat others as we would want to be treated.
