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.

Learning at Home

Float or Sink Bathtime

You Will Need:

Bathtub, 2 buckets or butter tubs, small objects that float (boats, wooden block, bar soap, sponge, plastic containers, etc.), small items that sink (rock, spoon, hair brush or comb, etc.)


Young children will notice that some things float and some sink. Ask your child to put all the things that float in one bucket and all the items that sink into the other.


As always, watch for things that have sharp edges or might be choke hazards. Do not use small objects for children under three.
