TODDLER CARE AT BRIGHT BEGINNINGS
Toddler Program (1 to 2 years)
When your toddler’s in the right place, you just know. Our program is designed to give you that feeling — a safe place for your newly independent child to test out and learn new skills, wonder about everything, and discover how to make friends. It’s all alongside teachers who know every day that they’re not caring for any child, but the most important child — yours.
Our Toddler Program is designed to be an interactive experience between the classroom, the teacher, and the children. Toddlers will learn to count, formulate sentences, discover their artistic and musical abilities, differentiate between their emotions, and learn about the world around them. Each child’s day is structured into learning blocks that focus on core concepts: physical development and health, language and literacy, creative arts, mathematics, social emotional development, science, and social studies.
Individualized Care To Help Your Child Thrive
Our program is rooted in what research says is best for early learning, as children make developmental leaps and build skills for the future.
