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.

"Yilin has changed a lot in the 2 months. I was superised when he was keeping asking where is Karen when you are out of office and I was told how excited Yilin and other little ones saw you back to the classroom after almost 1 week. Your smile, your sweet hugs and kisses get rewarded!"

Using a watering can to wash away shampoo can be a fun way to get hair washing done.
