We understand that not all children develop at the same pace, therefore, our Young Toddler program provides a diverse array of activities, materials, and support for children at the various stages of their
development. The program provides a cheerful and secure environment that promotes open, child paced learning.

At this important stage of personal and physical growth our teachers will focus on helping children express their independence and provide support and resources to help them make substantive progress in their development. Through a support program that utilizes encouragement and praise, we work with children to help them achieve a number of goals including language development, use of motor skills, crawling and walking, and help to encourage a love for books, songs, and art activities.
