The Young Toddler Room is for children ages 18 months to 2 years old.
A very fun room! The Young Toddler Room is a transition room from little baby to toddler. Children begin to develop an ever increasing desire for independence. And our room enables that desire. Concepts such as eating meals at a table, circle time, and even potty training ( if and when they are ready) are all introduced in this room.
Our main goal here is to provide a safe, loving and stimulating environment.
Young Toddler Schedule
Everyday parents and caregivers are given a Daily Toddler Report. This will let you know everything your child has done throughout the day, how their day was and what they ate for breakfast, lunch and snack.
The toddler's have their very own playground. We try to go outside and play everyday!!
