Toddler Program

Our Toddler Program promotes the beginning of independence while ensuring that children succeed in their environment.

Caring teachers help toddlers learn how to respond appropriately socially, manage their own emotions, broaden their receptive and expressive language skills and develop more refined gross and fine motor abilities.

Experienced teachers encourage learning by inviting play, active exploration, and creative movement and they continually engage children in thoughtful conversation as they encourage children to try new activities and experiences.

As children demonstrate readiness, teachers work with families to help children succeed with toilet training.
