Early Childhood


Building Secure and Caring Relationships

Our toddler program encourages socialization and independence while offering many opportunities for children to explore and interact in a safe, nurturing environment. Our teachers understand early relationships have a profound and lasting impact on a developing child. A young child's achievements in learning, language, social development and self-regulation are nurtured through these interactions.

Toddlers develop the confidence to explore and take risks knowing that their teacher is there for them. They enjoy a safe and challenging play environment that promotes relationships and fosters physical growth and development, curiosity, and exploration. Toddlers learn through these interactions which enhance their cognitive, language, motor and social skills.
