Toddler Room A houses 15 children ages 14-16 months to 31-35 months old. The current child to teacher ratio is 5 to 1.
Room A is a very warm and nurturing environment that allows for countless fun, educational opportunities and activities. Through play and interaction with peers, your child will engage daily in all developmental areas, including: cognitive, fine/gross motor, music and movement, language and literacy, as well as creative arts and dramatic play. Child initiated, as well as teacher directed activities allow for children to develop social skills, become independent, and feel confident and secure in their surroundings and amongst peers.
