About Us

Jolly Tots Child Care and Private Academic School, was founded in 1959 by Marie L. Thompson. The center was the first licensed center in Bucks County and was purchased solely for the purpose of teaching and caring for young children. It is a true, homelike atmosphere with spacious indoor play areas; 1st classrooms and a large fully equipped outdoor area.


Over the years Jolly Tots has received many awards for excellence in teaching, acclamations from Bucks, Montgomery and Philadelphia counties for the advanced programs of its Pre-school and Private Kindergarten.


Marie lived and worked with young children for 45 years. Many of the children of her former students have attended or are presently attending her school. Love of God, family and country were her top priorities and are still the foundation taught today. She firmly believed that if you teach young children these and other values that really count, they will never forget.
