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.

"From the moment we drop off our child to the moment we pick her up we are comforted by the care, education and love you provide to her on a daily basis. With each day she is brighter, happier and a more well-rounded child."

Learning at Home

Shake, Rattle, and Roll

You Will Need:

Music, plastic containers with lids (clear are preferable), small items such as corks, spools, etc. (but large enough so they’re not a choking hazard -- use a “no-choke tube” to test if you aren’t sure).

Directions:

Put the small items in the plastic containers. Play music and interact with your child by shaking, rattling and rolling the containers. Encourage your child to put the small items in the containers himself. Talk about the different sounds you hear. Introduce words such as “shake” (say, “Let’s shake the container”), “rattle” (say, “The corks are rattling inside the container”), and “roll” (say, “Let’s roll on the ground with the container”).

Tip:

Try different objects in the containers and compare different sounds. Toddlers might dance with the containers. 

What Your Child Can Learn:

  • Competence (“I can make this happen.”)
  • Cause and effect (“When I shake this, it makes a sound.”)
  • Vocabulary words such as  “shake,” “rattle,” and “roll,” 
  • How to identify the items in the containers
  • Discrimination between different sounds
  • Fun is a shared event
