Hey, I’m Jocelyn, creator of Circle Time Success!

Since 1999, I have been on a passionate mission to impact as many children as possible through music. I founded Musically Minded,. an early childhood music education company, in 2003 and along with the help of my amazingly talented team of teachers, we share the world of music with over 1,000 children each week in childcare centers in and around Seattle, Washington. 

But that’s not enough! Children need music all day every day and teachers deserve a high-quality resource they can count on to keep their teaching fresh, fun and full of learning. Great news, that’s us! 

Check out all we offer below, then join our circle of teachers who, like you, are serious about combining fun and learning through music and movement.

  • Curriculum
  • Online and In Person Trainings 

Check out our great products and services, then let us know how we can help “awaken the rhythm of life” in your littlest learners.

Teacher Training

At Circle Time Success, we believe trainings should leave you inspired, empowered

Thank you for an awesome training. We had several teachers give us positive feedback the next day and I saw immediate implementation in one classroom that I was observing. It was great to see.

Thank you so much for allowing me to have the opportunity to watch your circle time success for free. It was educational and fun. I learned so many different tools to help keep my children engaged as well as keep them having fun. You are truly an amazing educator and I look forward to watching and learning from your future videos.
