Toddler Child Care Services

For Children 16 months - 33 months

Children may move into the toddler room at 16 months of age.

In the toddler room we have a ratio of 1 staff member to every 5 toddlers (versus the state required 1:7).

We are responsive to the toddler's needs, temperament, and schedule. Our staff ensures that both you and your child are comfortable with the transition from home to school. We will help your toddler become comfortable with new experiences.

The caregivers in the toddler program also ensure that your child has many supportive opportunities to explore their environment and gain new experiences through frequent and stimulating interactions with their caregivers and other children.

We have two toddler age classrooms each licensed to serve up to 15 children.





2 Days: $225/week

3 Days: $300/week

4 days is considered full-time

Breakfast, a Hot Catered Lunch and Snack Included
