Emerging Toddler Program

Emerging Toddler Program: (12-24 months)

Our older infant classroom is designed to focus on the individual growth of each child. We recognize that when children are 12 months old, they need to explore, be encouraged to communicate, walk and engage in cooperative play. We have designed a curriculum to encourage your child’s physical, intellectual, emotional and social development, while continuing to provide a safe, stimulating and nurturing environment. Our Emerging Toddler curriculum is based on each child’s individual development and needs. Our goal is to allow your child to grow and develop in their own time until they are developmentally ready for our Toddler classroom.
