Toddler Program

Toddler Program

In our specially designed Toddler Program, children are cared for in a nurturing environment that reinforces self-help skills and introduces potty-training. Emphasis is on appropriate social interaction, strengthening listening skills, expanding language skills and vocabulary building.

Lots of creativity, imagination and discovery can be found in this program. Exploration is big in their environment, as well as, the world around them. Children are encouraged to follow simple instructions or directions and introduced to following a classroom structure. Our toddlers are actively learning about their emotions and appropriate social interaction. Manners and social etiquette are emphasized and fostered.
