Toddler

12 months – 3 years

Very young children are capable of absorbing information, concepts, and skills from their surroundings and peers. The toddler program nurtures curiosity, creativity, imagination and respect for self and others. Learning is developed through movement, manipulation, exploration, and building on sensory experiences. Our toddlers exercise order, coordination, and concentration through language and socialization skills as they develop a sense of trust in peers and adults.
