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.

As part of our Bright Learner process for understanding, planning, and communicating your child's developmental journey, our toddler teachers are able to provide parents electronic updates throughout the day through our My Bright Day mobile app to share each child's experience with parents.  This service is optional for our families.
 
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!"

Learning at Home

Restaurant Rescue Box

You Will Need:

A small box or bag containing special items that are only to be taken out at restaurants. Possibilities include: activity books, a calculator, rocks and a magnifying glass, small Etch A Sketch, magnets, paper clips to make a chain, special pens and a book, strings or yarn for braiding, sticker books, magic slates, etc. Do not use small objects like paper clips for children under three.

Directions:

Collect the items and rotate different activities each time you go to a restaurant. Make the items in the box special, to be used only at restaurants.

Tip:

Children will look forward to going to restaurants to see what’s in the box, which may help them sit at the table for longer periods.
