Toddlers

18 months – 3 years

Play and Learn

In our Toddler Room, we use Mother Goose Time early learning curriculum. The teachers engage children’s curiosity by offering sensory-reach play that inspires kids’ imagination through art, drama, investigation of the world, and invokes their problem-solving skills. 
Teachers nurture caring relationships with children and encourage them to express their feelings in a productive way
Children experience hands-on learning through play, dance to toddler tunes, coloring, and reading books. 

Please and Thank You

Toddlers also start learning social manners and mutual respect. Sharing and caring are operative words as well as the magical words “please” and “thank you”. at this age, children are exposed to letters, numbers, colors, and shapes to start building a foundation of learning. Potty-training is a major developmental step at this age.
The children enjoy Circle Time where they discuss the weather, calendar, daily routine, and participate in age-appropriate problem-solving.

Encouraging Imagination

The children delight in their yoga and music classes as well as the many other special activities prepared for them. They participate in activities that help to develop their fine motor skills. They have a great time enjoying the learning centers, dressing in costumes, and letting their imaginations take them to interesting places.

Weather permitting the children to enjoy playtime in a spacious, fenced-in yard. When the children cannot do outdoor activities, they have fun doing their indoor “toddler-exercises”.

SEC is a group of highly-skilled security and protection experts.

What happens if my child needs medication?

We will ask you to fill out a special medication form with all the necessary information we need to administer the medication for your child. Medications should be in their original packaging and must be prescribed to the child.

What do you do about food allergies?

We will ask you to fill out the allergy form for your child and will make any accommodations necessary to keep your baby safe with us. 

What happens if my child becomes ill at school?

Our children's wellbeing is our top priority. If your child becomes ill, has a very high fever, vomiting, has diarrhea, or is exhibiting any other symptoms of a contagious illness, you will be notified and asked to pick the child up. In cases requiring medication, we ask that the child only returns to our care after finishing medication and 24 hrs fever-free. Illnesses are dealt with on a case by case basis.
