Toddlers 18 months to 3 years old
Our toddler program is designed to be a safe, nurturing experience for your little one(s), and also extremely convenient and reassuring to parents. We mix care with fun, and also give your child the specific attention he or she needs. We’re open from 6:30am until 6:30pm, and provide two meals and a snack, making us convenient for every situation.
By their very nature, toddlers need trained eyes upon them at all times (that’s hardly news to you, though!). But we mention this because parents of toddlers, above all else, value safety and security, and they want peace of mind when they leave their little ones. So if you are the parent of a toddler and are considering daycare, rest assured that your child is in the very best of hands at Small Steps – Big Strides. We wipe noses (and bottoms), we’re patient, and we make sure little fingers and toes stay out of trouble.
Bottom line: Our experienced and caring staff will fill you with confidence, and your child will continuously come home with a smile on his or her face.
Teaching Your Toddler
As with all of our programs, we emphasize development and learning. For toddlers, this means learning through songs, games, pictures, and similar. We place an emphasis on helping them remember sounds and patterns, developing hand-eye coordination, and problem-solving (via blocks, dolls, interactive puzzles, etc.) when they are ready. For older toddlers, letters and numbers enter the picture.
