Our Toddler Program

A place for growing curious, happy and confident toddlers

Our space is built for active and inquisitive toddlers with environments made up of well-planned learning centers that allow for physical activity, child choice and self-directed play, small groups, and supportive teaching. There are reading nooks, sensory tables, great books, pretend play areas, baskets filled with dress-up and exploratory materials, musical instruments, and places to explore.

Learning experiences are planned to promote each toddler’s growing independence, to enhance social skills, and to build the confidence needed to reach their individual potential.

Learning at Home

Marbleized Gift Wrap

You Will Need:

Paper (white, freezer, butcher, or white drawing), plastic wrap, several colors of tempera paint, newspapers or vinyl tablecloth to cover work surface, trash can, smock or old shirt to protect your clothes

Directions:

Cover work surface. Have your child drip paint onto the paper, letting several colors touch. Place plastic wrap over the paint. Then have your child smooth the paper, creating designs with his or her fingers. Remove plastic wrap and allow paper to dry completely before you use as gift wrap.

Tip:

Make the paint thin to prevent clumping or flaking. You may want to tape the paper to the table to keep it from moving when your child rubs the paint around. Have the trash can handy to toss the plastic wrap once you’re done.
