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

Treasures in a Bag

You Will Need:

Purse or canvas bag and small items (magnets, keys, old credit cards, lipstick, small toys, paint brush, etc.)

Directions:

Put objects in the purse or bag. Then, have your child open the bag and discover the treasures. Talk to your child about what she is finding. Say things like, “What do you call that?” and “What can we do with that?”

Tip:

This is a fun activity for your child to do in a restaurant, while waiting for a table or food. Be sure that objects are large enough that your child will not choke on them.
