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.

"Thank you all for what you do with my child. I am amazed at how much he has developed and learned. Being a working mom is such a hard thing sometimes but it makes it so much easier when you know your child is being loved and nurtured by truly caring individuals. Thanks for being his mom away from mom."

Learning at Home

Color Cards

You Will Need:

File folders in 6 different colors, clear contact paper, a hole/paper punch (a shape punch, such as a star or heart can be fun), scissors, a metal ring that opens and closes

Directions:

To Prepare Cards:

  • Cover the file folder with contact paper
  • Cut file folder into 1-by-6-inch strips
  • Punch a hole in one end of each strip in the same spot
  • Hold the strips together by inserting the metal ring through holes and fastening together
Show your child one color at a time, say the name of the color, and have him or her find something in the area or think of something that is the same color. Having the card to look at while you say the name of the color is a great help for toddlers who are learning their colors.

Tip:

Use these cards while waiting for trains, planes, and buses, or while waiting for an appointment.
