Programs & Schedules

Older Toddler (2 - 3.5 years)

We support the “can-do” attitude of two and three year olds and utilize their curiosity, social and sensory experiences to develop strong cognitive abilities. Our curriculum is designed to immerse your child in rich and stimulating activities, including pretend play and dialogue. Our teachers will guide your toddler toward developing social relationships and, gradually, small group tasks will be set for children to complete together in order to encourage cooperation and compromise.

Physical development is promoted through numerous opportunities for children to run, jump, walk and climb, and participate in dance and yoga lessons.
