Toddler life is busy life! Toddlers are setting out to explore the world and everything in our toddler program supports them in their journey. From learning to wash their hands to forming their first friendship, toddlerhood is full of amazing milestones. Our loving and patient caregivers will guide toddlers to increase their self esteem through gaining independence. That’s why we have child-sized sinks, toilets, and furniture in our classrooms to foster autonomy.
Toddlers’ favorite word is “why?” and our caregivers are there to answer their questions patiently and support to become the best version of themselves! Book a tour to see our toddler room for yourself; we can’t wait to meet you.
