Toddlers

Toddlers 12 – 24 months

Using a variety of educational toys and activities, our toddler teachers encourage your child to learn through hands-on play, to solve problems through experimentation and to begin to develop language skills. Our curriculum incorporates music, story time, rhyming and group time into each day. Through exploration, toddlers learn to become more self-confident in this stage of life.

The unique shaded outdoor terrace provides busy toddlers a chance to participate in outdoor activities and use riding toys that develop coordination and encourage sharing.
