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.

"Ms. Gihan has been so helpful and patient with my daughter's transition from her school in North Carolina to this center. It takes a special teacher to adapt to the unique personality of each child and Ms. Gihan has done this with so much kindness. The Zurita family thanks you!"

Color Cards

You Will Need:

File folders in 6 different colors, clear contact paper paper punch (shape punches, such as a star or heart are fun)

To Prepare Cards:

  • Cut file folder into 1-by-6-inch strips
  • Cover the file folder with contact paper
  • Punch a hole in one end of each strip in the same spot
  • Hold the strips together by inserting the metal rings through holes

Directions:

Show your child one color at a time and have him or her find something in the area that is the same color, or think of something that is that color. Having the card to look at while you say the name of the color is a great help for Toddlers who are learning their colors.

Tip:

Use these cards while waiting for trains, planes and buses.
