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

"I'm so happy to have you taking care of Aleah. She is clearly thriving and in the midst of all the toddler "no"s, she almost always says "yes" when I as if she wants to go in to see you every morning. So, thank you! -Cathy"

Learning at Home

Taped Voices

You Will Need:

Cassette recorder, Tape, Book or song or poem

Directions:

Tape your voice singing, reading a book or poem, or talking to your baby. Play this tape when your baby is going to sleep, commuting in the car or at times when you can’t be wit her.

Tip:

Sing or read often to your baby while you are holding her so she will relate the sound of your voice with the warmth of your arms. Poems or books with a lot of repetition or rhyming words are best. Use a high pitched voice or “parentese” with very young babies but try to phase out baby talk after about 6 months of age. Frequently say the baby’s name on the tape. This tape will help baby feel at ease when she is not with you.
