Our Toddler program serves one year olds, using a curriculum that enhances all areas of children's development. Songs and stories help children learn to express themselves, while increasing their vocabulary. Painting, play-dough, and other art activities strengthen the muscles in children's hands and help them develop fine motor control. Dancing, catching balls and running on the playground develop gross motor skills and help children develop coordination. Our toddlers are also learning how to play together, how to take turns (with a teacher's help!) and how to treat others with kindness and respect. We are learning independence as we help dress ourselves, as we wash our hands, and as we learn important potty training skills.
Every moment is a learning moment!
Experiences with real objects build children's curiosity and provide incredible language development:
watermelon, round, smooth, heavy, big, sweet, wet, yummy
Our toddler program focuses on enhancing children's development across all developmental domains through all our daily routines:
We are proud to say that we have amazing teachers! Our staff care for and nurture the children every day, and it is their dedication that makes our program so exceptional! Our teachers have training and experience in early childhood and they are dedicated to ensuring that your child's experience at school is truly amazing!
Most importantly of all, our teachers understand that building caring relationships with children and their families is the foundation of a high-quality toddler program! We are committed to serving you and your family.
One Year Olds:
Monday through Friday
Our toddler program is a full-time program, Monday through Friday.
Part-time schedule options are available beginning in our preschool class. Families are, of course, welcome to use just the days that they need.
Most children potty-train some time between 24 and 30 months, with some children potty training a bit later and a few children potty training earlier.
To find out if your child is ready for potty training, talk to your child's teacher today and ask for a copy of our potty training recommendations!

"Children learn as they play. Most importantly, in play children learn how to learn." -- Fred Donaldson
We understand the importance of children and teachers establishing and maintaining a warm, loving relationship over time. Our children are assigned to a classroom family for the entire school year, with the goal of maintaining those close relationships so children can thrive!
