Waddler & Toddler Care

We strive to provide a balance of self-selected and teacher lead experiences with a strong art base. Children will be encouraged to explore their environment and engage with their peers to promote positive social/emotional development. We also emphasize language development, including Spanish and sign language.All waddlers and toddlers must have a change of clothes (or many), and disposable diapers (if they use them). Each child has their own cubby. Our classrooms have designated “centers” your child can visit throughout their day. We also have daily learning center activities lead by the teachers.  Classrooms themes, schedules and lesson plans are posted. Our staff: child ratio is 1:6.
