Toddler Day Care & Early Education (1 - 2 Years)

When your child is all over the place, they are discovering their world. Toddlers learn best in safe, loving places where they can explore, in their own way. The activities for this age group are built around toddlers’ limitless curiosity and their natural desire to push boundaries.

Inside your toddler's day

During their time with us, your child will learn to count, discover writing and music. He/she will start building toward following simple instructions, writing and the potty.
