Welcome to the Toddler Program!

Ages: 15 months – 2 years

Although sometimes our 15 month olds are thought of as babies, in this room we like to start thinking about them as toddlers and becoming more independent. By 15 months old and before entering the room there are a few things we would like for your toddler to be able to do in order to get the best experience they can:

1.) Drink milk from a Sippy cup (unless allergic then a milk supplement must be used)

2.) Be an active walker

3.) Be able to finger-feed themselves.

The toddler years are some of the most crucial times in a child’s life to begin learning new things and understanding themselves. We are dedicated to helping your child reach their highest level of learning and are excited to have you join us! Below is a snapshot of information that is very important in understanding what goes on in the toddler room and the activities we encounter on a daily basis. Should you ever have any questions about our program, please don’t hesitate to ask.
