OUR CURRICULUM: 24-36 MONTHS (TODDLERS)

TODDLER PROGRAM

 

The focus of our Toddler program is to allow children ownership of their learning by teaching them to make appropriate choices. Throughout the morning, toddlers choose from a variety of learning areas and materials to explore and investigate. Toddlers enroll 2, 3 or 5 mornings a week. Our student: staff ratio is 4: 1.
