Toddlers

12months to 24 months

Being a toddler means to use your newfound locomotion skills to get out and explore the world. But, being a parent means you want someone to provide all the nurture and love your baby still needs. Our Toddler Room is designed to meet both of your needs. Our skilled teachers get to know your special child, and meet his/her physical and emotional needs while helping them adjust to a more formal learning environment.

In our Toddler classroom:

  • Teachers build children’s understanding of the world and develop skills.
  • Formal story times are introduced and guided reading cards support teachers in helping children gain literacy skills while enjoying developmentally-appropriate literature.
  • Songs, games, and teacher-led activities help your child develop math, science, social, emotional, and literacy skills.
  • Sign language and Spanish instruction are included as part of your toddler’s day to broaden his or her understanding of the world and enhance communication abilities.
  • Our language curriculum uses children’s stories to help your child acquire literacy skills and explore character development.

So much learning – so much fun!

Pre-K2

24months to 36 months

Being two is a special time of life. Your child wants to exert his independence, but still needs to know there’s a caring adult who has his back. Our teachers balance these needs by providing a more structured environment that offers room for exploration, learning, and fun.

In our Step-Up classroom:

  • Teachers use the nationally-recognized Creative Curriculum™ to build on the skills children developed in their first two years of life.
  • Stories, songs, teacher-led experiences, and an engaging classroom environment all help your child learn and grow.
  • Your child’s teacher tailors experiences to fit your child’s learning needs.
  • Spanish and sign language are integrated into the classroom to make learning a global experience.
  • Our proprietary Character Counts program uses children’s stories to help your child acquire literacy skills and explore character development.


Learning Tools

Your child will be introduced to our specialized STEAM learning tools. Whether she is building with our ramps and balls kit, interacting with friends on the Engage-2 Tablet PC, or creating with age-appropriate art tools, your child will receive the tools she needs to be a leader in the 21st century.
