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

Oatmeal Roll

You Will Need:

Empty oatmeal box, small items that fit inside

Directions:

Put items such as a ball, rattle, pasta, or any small toy into the box and put on the lid. Sit on the floor with your child and roll the container to him. Ask, “What is making that noise? What do you think it is?” and open the container. Older toddlers will open it themselves and enjoy putting different items in it. Talk about what fits and what doesn’t. Say things like, “Will the pillow fit in the box? Let’s try. No, that’s too big, what else can we try?”

Tip:

Be as silly as you can in guessing what will fit. The answers are not obvious to babies like they are to us.
