Joy School is a preschool where parents form a neighborhood group (usually three to seven families) and receive the materials needed (music (CDs or .mp3 files), stories, lesson plans, visual aids, etc.) to conduct a twice a week do-it-yourself preschool -- rotating from home to home, with each mother taking her turn as teacher. Over 100,000 families throughout the world have participated in Joy Schools. View a Joy School in action. Joy School was developed by Linda & Richard Eyre, parenting experts and New York Times best selling authors of Teaching Your Children Values.
With Joy Schools your trusted friends and neighbors are the other teachers; you take your turn teaching and then have more free time while the others take their turns; and the cost of Joy School is less than one-tenth that of the average commercial preschool.

Every member of your Joy School group will receive on-line access to the Joy School lesson plans and will receive the music CDs for the semester in which they are enrolled. We have divided the Joy School year into two semesters. The first semester goes from September through January and the second semester goes from February through May if you follow the
