In 2001 Jamaica Stevens, Founder and Jamaica-Stevens-Founder-Executive-DirectorExecutive Director of JAMaROO Kids (formally known as Discovering the Joy of Dance) decided to combine her knowledge of Child Development with her passion for dance, music and teaching. Consequently she created an Introduction to Creative Movement and Dance class for preschool aged children. In 2004, she was passionate about expanding this program and left her position as Head Teacher at ABC Academy Preschool to embark on teaching these dance classes full time. 

Soon after she added music classes to compliment her dance program, which brought about the realization that there was a need for more enrichment teachers and quality enrichment programs for young children in the Bay Area. Therefore in 2006, Jamaica officially changed the name of the company to JAMaROO Kids and began adding additional programs including Yoga, Art and Bilingual classes.


JAMaROO Kids expanded by opening their first onsite location in Lower Pacific Heights, San Francisco in the year 2011. This beautiful enrichment center and official headquarters is where their team conducts over 25 classes weekly and also houses an inside play-space. Additionally it can be used to host birthday parties, workshops, and special events.


This ever-growing company currently offers Dance, Music, Yoga, JAMaROO Time, Storytime, Bilingual and Art classes weekly in over 100 different preschools, grade schools, after-schools, family daycares, recreation centers, children’s stores and museums throughout the Bay Area. They work with 3000 children weekly and reach over 250,000 families annually in six different Bay Area Counties. When their team is not teaching you can find them hosting children’s parties and entertaining others at many community, corporate and private events. Members of their leadership team often present at local conferences and host a variety of workshops as well.
