TODDLER CLASS

The toddler class is a small class of four students. The low teacher-to-child ratio enables the teacher to give each of them the nurturing attention that they require. They will learn to separate from their parents and make new friends.  The children will have opportunities to build vocabulary and cooperation skills while playing learning games with their peers.  They will enjoy the planned set of age-appropriate activities which include singing songs, listening to stories,and other educational experiences.  Each toddler's specific needs will be met with a schedule that allows for potty-training, smaller group learning experiences, one-on-one attention, and plenty of nurturing.
