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.
