At this special age, your toddler is focused upon using their new-found mobility, reaching out as they learn to trust and understand what for them is an ever-expanding world.
Little Ivy’s Beginnings Toddler Nursery Program has been crafted to provide your 12- to 24-month -old with both the experienced teacher-caregiver they need to guide and nurture their unique curiosity, as well as a secure and stimulating learning environment for exploring their world. Throughout each day, your toddler-on-the-go will have plenty of opportunities for individualized learning and conversation, while their primary teacher-caregiver provides a trusting home-base for love, comfort, care and guidance. Our daily schedule respects your child's individual needs, while helping them to develop the social skills they’ll needed to succeed in and beyond school. The Beginnings Toddler Nursery Program curriculum, offered as a either a full-day or half-day program, has been designed to focus upon:
