TODDLER ROOM

The Toddler Room serves children between 12 and  months of age, although this may vary depending on each child's development. There are two caregivers with a maximum of 14 toddlers. Play activities are designed to encourage stimulation in fine and gross motor development and positive social and emotional interactions. Our days are child driven and by choice.
