"Children see magic because they look for it" - Christopher Moore

Our classrooms are designed for your children to foster their independence and learn about the world around them while safely exploring its boundaries.

We have two programs for toddlers at different stages of development and emotional growth. While we take more than age into account while determining placement, most children in the pre-toddler program are 14 months to 2.5 years old. Most children in the toddler program are between 2 and 3 years old.

Toddler Care Programs

Our pre-toddler program starts at around 14 months up to 2.5 years and our toddler program is around 2-3. There are several factors we take into consideration when choosing your child's classroom or deciding if they are ready for the next one. We take the whole child into consideration besides their age, we also look at where they are at developmentally and emotionally. The pre-toddler ratio is 5 children : 1 provider and the toddler classroom is 7 children : 1 provider.
