  • The Growing World of Toddlers

    Toddler Curriculum

    Toddlers are inquisitive and exploratory by nature, striving for independence and autonomy, while insatiably curious.  Our Growing World of Toddlers curriculum uses hands-on exploration and social interaction to help the children learn about the world in a safe and engaging environment.  At Bright Horizons at University Park, we celebrate the children's uniqueness, guiding these newly independent children towards greater self-confidence and encouraging developmental capabilities that will lead the way toward achieving new skills.

    Our Toddler program targets the changing needs of children 15 month to 2 years 9 months by offering age-appropriate learning opportunities to encourage individual skills and independent choices.
