OUR TODDLER CLASSROOMS
In the dynamic environment of our toddler classrooms, children begin to acclimate to a schedule within a whole group setting. Through a combination of personalized instruction and small group time, teachers advance toddlers’ resourcefulness, critical thinking skills, and capacity for compassion. Our toddler Budding Scholars™ approach includes a balance of child-directed and teacher-initiated opportunities. Hands-on learning and play keep toddlers actively engaged and continuously interested in understanding more about themselves, their friends, their family, and the world around them.
