Toddler 1 Room

Our toddler 1 classroom is for children 14 months-2 years (or developmentally ready). Research indicates that the first three years are critical in terms of laying the groundwork for the years to follow. Our goal is to create consistency and continuity for the children in our care. Our effort to establish a trusting relationship with the world around them is enhanced by creating significant relationships with our caregivers. A safe, nurturing environment with a carefully planned program fosters the physical, cognitive, social and emotional development of each child and family served. We do require a minimum of 3 days a week for the children under 2, years of age, as this does help develop and maintain a consistent schedule and routine. Children are transitioned to the toddler 2 room when they are developmentally ready. This decision will be made by the director with the parents, approval.  

**Tuition rates are based on the child's "primary" classroom during the transition period when transitioning to another classroom**
