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

Taped Voices

You Will Need:

Cassette recorder, tape, and a book, song, or poem


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 with her.


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.
