Jamaroo Kids founder Jamaica Stevens has two passions?the art of dance and teaching?that she uses to inspire young children. Rather than just occupying kids, her company has aimed to entertain them and enrich their early lives since its opening in 2004. From daily sessions at Jamaroo's San Francisco studio to weekly classes at over 100 area preschools and daycares, trained instructors lead toddlers in fun, engaging activities like yoga, creative movement, and dance. Kids' creative impulses are indulged with singing and storytelling sessions and their young minds nourished with bilingual classes, arts and crafts, and non-Euclidean geometry. Jamaroo Kids prides itself on its contributions to the community and the world at large. Not only do they help educate the city's children, but instructors also donate their time to local nonprofits and community organizations.

Q&A with Marc Lariz, Administrator

What special training do you or your staff have?

All staff has an educational background specific to Early Childhood Education. They are all CPR and First-Aid Certified and they all have Background checks performed on them.

What is the one feature of your business that you're most proud of?

Our family-run atmosphere has allowed us the flexibility to create fun and unique classrooms and play yards. Custom made play structures and huge outdoor areas separate us from our competition.

What is the experience customers can expect, and how do you make it special?

You can expect to deal with teachers that genuinely care about your child and an administrative staff that genuinely care about you. It is more than a job to us, it is a calling.

A gallery of masterpieces showcases stunningly virtuosic renderings—which are especially impressive considering they were created by kids. While fostering a friendly, cheerful atmosphere, instructors teach classical art skills to classes of up to 12 students at a time. During weekly classes, the skilled instructors demonstrate how to realistically illustrate animals, figures, and still-life scenes using traditional media. "Creativity follows mastery" is the KidsArt philosophy, so they designed the sort of program they imagine the old masters would have approved. Planting graphite sticks and paintbrushes in pupils' hands, instructors teach color mixing, show students how to break an image into its component parts, and instill necessary behaviors such as focus and patience. Programs include individualized drawing and painting lessons and special-topic workshops, such as clay sculpture, figure drawing, and Anime/cartooning.
