Your Child Is Ready To Explore Their Independence


Toddlers are at the age that they want to do everything “all by themselves,” and why shouldn't they be able to try? To satisfy this desire for independence your child’s teacher encourages them hang up their jackets, tidy toys, push in chairs, and pick their favorite activities. Choices and daily tasks teach independence and responsibility.

Strict Cleaning Measures Keep Everyone Healthy

  • Toys and supplies used during the morning are are cleaned and disinfected at naptime and toys and supplies used in the afternoon are cleaned disinfected at the end of the day.

  • Children's hands are washed with soap and water before eating, after diaper changes or after using the bathroom, and after playing outside.

  • Napping cots are assigned to each child and never shared. 

  • Caregivers are required to wear a new pair of gloves before each diaper change and while helping children in the bathroom.

  • The changing table is sanitized after each use.


Consistent & Frequent Potty Breaks For Young Toilet Trainers


Once your child begins to show self awareness and an interest in potty training, our teachers are ready to help them succeed. Potty watches remind children that it is time to stop and take a potty break. Teachers guide them through dressing and undressing, toileting, and proper handwashing. Every child will toilet train when they are ready and until they reach this really big milestone, our teachers are there to offer them tons of support.

Time For Rest Helps Your Toddler To Regulate Their Emotions

 
During naptime, toddlers lay on individual cots. Your child may bring a small blanket to cuddle up in. White sound and soft music help ease children into a restful sleep. Teachers stay with napping children to provide supervision and comfort. 


Reaching Developmental Milestones


Our teachers are focused on helping each child reach developmental milestones at their own pace. Cognitive learning, social-emotional, language and gross and fine motor skills are enhanced through music and movement, art, dramatic play, STEM activities, manipulatives, puzzles, and books. Our teachers pay special attention when talking to and listening to young children to enhance vocabulary and to develop self-esteem. The room is filled with age appropriate activities to engage your child's curiosity and develop their motor skills.

Continuity of Care Builds Strong Relationships and Reduces Stress For Young Children


Your child will remain with the same teachers and classmates all year. Totschoolers will transition to our Preschool Program in August after their 3rd birthday. A transition plan will be implemented over a two week period. This will allows your child to slowly become familiar with new teachers and children, ensuring that they are ready and excited to move up.
