A toddler's growth and development is boundless. Their minds and bodies are literally sponges, soaking up every word and action presented to them. They are learning how to act and react towards every emotional and environmental stimulus. They are beginning to combine ideas and words into sentences and to better understand themselves and the world around them. Because of this new found freedom, they struggle with their feelings of independence versus dependence. They want to do everything by themselves, yet they also realize they need love, attention and help to accomplish these goals. Through patience and understanding we walk this fine line with your toddler, providing the guidance they need along with the independence they crave. As your child grows and makes the transition from toddler to preschooler we begin to incorporate structure into their day. Children of this age find security and comfort through consistency of care. We provide this for your child, with a reassuring routine and a familiar schedule. Preschoolers are very curious and inquisitive by nature; asking many questions and expecting many more answers. We not only give them the answers they need, but also ask why, when, where, and how; thereby encouraging expressive conversation, fostering an imaginative and free-thinking child.
Children ages 2 to 3 years old receive loving and individualized care in a stimulating environment with spacious rooms rich in color giving your child an exciting world full of opportunities to explore, learn, and grow. We offer a place where fun, learning and laughter go hand in hand with a caring atmosphere, a reassuring routine and creative activities, providing toddlers and preschoolers with a sense of security and over all well being; where they can feel safe and happy and can begin to build confidence and a positive self image. Our goal is to provide a fun and safe learning environment for your child, while encouraging social, emotional, intellectual, and physical development. We always interact at their level, listen to every word and encourage meaningful conversation with us and their peers. Each child is different, unique, and special. Therefore we strive to meet the developmental needs of each child in our care; by giving them a world filled with responsive interactions and positive reinforcement, nurturing a foundation for development and helping to enable your child to reach their full potential.
