Our environment is designed to meet the rapidly developing needs of the walking toddlers. Sturdy picture books and a variety of educational toys are available on open shelves, so children can make their own choices. Toddlers have a limited language skills and our teachers use many opportunities, such as singing songs, reading picture books, naming objects and describing events, to help children learn new words. Your child will play both indoors and outdoors each day.Register
Our program provides children a balance of structured activities and time for independent, creative play. Researchers believe that children learn best without stress through hands-on activities. They are constantly in motion and optimum learning occurs when they are allowed to move and choose their own play (work). Children develop understanding of concepts about themselves, others and the world around them through seeking solutions to concrete problems. We have learning centers math, science, blocks, art, books, writing and dramatic play.Register
