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.

"Thank you for being such a wonderful teacher for our little Mira. When we first brought her to your class, a few months ago, she started crying and you welcomed her in your arms. We were amazed by how quickly she evolved to being a happy toddler in your group. Now we even do our best to bring Mira in early in the morning so that she can spend a lot of time around you and learn from you. Thank you!"
