About the Young Toddler

In this classroom we focus on engaging the kids in creative and imaginary play. We work on learning to share with our friends and how to handle our feelings when they start to take over. Every day we have circle time where we go over our letters, numbers, colors and shapes. We try our best to go outside every day, weather permitting, to run and get our energy out. Overall we work on developing a trusting relationship with your child.
