About our Toddler Classroom
Licensed for 12 children aged 16-36 months, our classroom is a safe environment toddlers can energetically experiment with structured play guided by a framework for children to develop pre-academic concepts such as color recognition, pencil grip and early literacy. Children are encouraged to achieve a sense of self as well as learn empathy for and cooperation with others. Toddlers are encouraged to perform self help skills independently such as toileting and hand washing. Many of these skills are mastered upon transitioning in to the Preschool Room.
