Our Toddler Program

A place for growing curious, happy and confident toddlers

Our space is built for active and inquisitive toddlers with environments made up of well-planned learning centers that allow for physical activity, child choice and self-directed play, small groups, and supportive teaching. There are reading nooks, sensory tables, great books, pretend play areas, baskets filled with dress-up and exploratory materials, musical instruments, and outdoor places to explore.

Learning experiences are planned to promote each toddler’s growing independence, to enhance social skills, and to build the confidence needed to reach their individual potential and prepare for preschool and beyond.

What Parents are Saying

Our greatest advocates are also our closest friends.

"Even before Landon started in the Toddler Room, Janet made myself and his Dad so comfortable about his transition. Landon is happy to go to BH each day and I know its because of his connection with Janet. Thank you for taking such good care of our little boy!"

Learning at Home

Treasure Hunt

You Will Need:

Paper, Markers, “Treasure” – favorite snack, small toy, old jewelry

Directions:

Draw pictures of places where you want your child to search for the treasure. Leave picture clues that direct him to the next location. Send him outside, to the mailbox, into the basement, all around the house. If your child can read or decode sounds, add the name of the location or a short written clue. If you prefer, use pictures from magazines as your clues. Glue them to index cards or crinkled brown paper. To make the paper look very authentic, soak it in tea or burn the edges of brown paper.

Tip:

This is a fun way to get snack after an afternoon nap. You can hide the clues while your child is asleep. Keep the clues; you will want to do this many times.
