    Toddler Daycare

    At this age, children are making strides verbally and socially. They begin to test their independence, influence and control. Our program allows them to explore, engage and enjoy their independence they crave. We provide, nurture and guide with age appropriate activities to improve coordination, increase verbal skills, and problem solve. In addition, our classroom introduces children to dramatic play, creative arts, language development, and sensory exploration. We also focus on the development of self-confidence, self-esteem, and a love of learning. We give our children plenty of opportunity to explore and play in a safe, secure, yet stimulating environment.

    Our weekly lesson plans encourage participation and fun. In addition, our teachers get to know each child to learn his or her strengths and needs. They use this knowledge to choose the age-appropriate, engaging, activities and experiences that will start toddlers on the path to lifelong learning. A daily report is given to update you on curriculum, meal time, nap time, toilet training, and other daily activities. Our goal is to nurture your toddler with a balance of play and learning throughout their day.

    Our toddler curriculum includes:

    • Our Creative Curriculum toddler program is our foundation for our classroom environment and lesson plan activities. The interactive learning games successfully promote early childhood learning through play and intentional teaching moments through daily activities.
    • Our baby sign language program, where teachers encourage building the children's vocabulary while using their sign language skills.
    • Our Bible Curriculum, The Beginner’s Bible, introduces children to the stories and characters in The Bible with engaging stories and fun activities.
    • Frog Street Curriculum, a child centered program that emphasizes all areas of development.
    • Emergent Curriculum, a program that focuses on the individual learning needs of each child.
