About the Young Toddler

Children in the toddler room enjoy short structured learning activities.  Due to their shorter attention spans, toddler activities last approximately ten minutes each.  Toddlers will have a great opportunity to enjoy the centers and equipment in their room.  They enjoy circle time, arts, language and literacy experiences and movement activities.  The toddlers also enjoy outdoor time for large muscle development.
