Our toddler program is for children between 18 and 24 months and is separated from older children in their own classroom. With a maximum of six children with one trained and qualified teacher, each child receives personal attention with many appropriate activities that foster language, vocabulary, coordination of movement and independence.
The scope of activities expands, responding to the needs of the growing child. You will see these youngsters engaging in many different activities as well as learning social skills. Potty training is included in the toddler program.
When children are ready and two years old, they move to the Preschool classroom. The preschool program is designed to hold a harmonious group of mixed ages of twos and threes and three trained teachers.
“The most important period in life is not the age of University studies, but the first one, the period from birth to age six.”
