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.

"We love that Evan is so excited to go to school in the morning. Before we are done with breakfast, he says, "want to see Donna." She is attentive, never complains and manages to keep all of the kids happy in her class. She does a great job in catering to each individual child's needs."

Learning at Home

Creating Science Collections

You Will Need:

An outdoor space, empty shoe boxes, tennis ball cans, other empty containers

Directions:

Talk about collecting things with your child and ask what type of collection she would like to start. If she likes rocks, go to an area where there are many rocks, like a park or the beach, and start collecting. Have her put each object into a container to add to her new collection. Display the collections in your home.

Tip:

Ask thought provoking questions like, “Where do you think that rock came from?” and “How are these rocks alike?” Displaying the collection artfully will show your child that you value the collection. Also, consider using the internet to find pictures and research topics, like finding more information about rocks, for example.
