Toddler Care

18 – 36 Months

Our toddler nursery school provides activities that are designed to enhance your child’s total development in a quality enriching early childhood education environment.

Our toddler curriculum allows your toddler to spend busy, fun-filled days engaged in activities that promote learning and discovery.  Whether it is filling containers at the water table, stacking and tumbling blocks, or playing with appropriate toys and puzzles, your toddler will learn as he or she plays.  Your toddler can investigate brightly colored objects and shapes, play dress up, practice somersaults on soft mats, chase after a spongy ball, or build fantastic structures with blocks.  Your toddler may also choose to cuddle up to his or her favorite caregiver and rock in a comfy chair.

The curriculum focuses on constantly listening to and talking with children.  Our experienced caregivers hold them, rock them, and encourage their social, emotional and language development.  Our caregivers surround them with age appropriate toys and tools to encourage exploration and discovery and enhance their overall development.  Our caregivers provide every opportunity possible for your toddler to develop his or her own interest, at his or her own pace.  Your toddler will spend each day in a variety of activity centers, each designed for special purposes and experiences necessary for toddler growth and development.
