Our toddler classrooms focus on providing learning opportunities in a fun, nurturing environment.
The toddler classrooms are designed with bright colors and filled with age appropriate toys. Throughout the day we adhere to a schedule that includes a balance between learning, play and rest.
We know toddlers are active so we provide many opportunities for them to explore and learn through play! Our toddlers focus on a lot of open-ended activities such as painting, playdough, sensory play and vocabulary building to develop fine motor skills and running and climbing to develop gross motor skills. We also encourage our toddlers to spend time in our dramatic play area. Dramatic play encourages children to engage with their peers and express themselves, plus they have a great time doing it!
At pick up, you’ll receive a report on your child’s day. We’ll provide details on when they ate, when they rested and when they played! Twice a year, we provide a progress report that details your child’s growth and development over a period of time.

Here’s what some of our parents are saying!

“These women are the most wonderful ladies I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. My kids have been coming here for the past 7 1/2 years and I wouldn't have it any other way. They have become family and I recommend this center to everyone I know! ”Jennie P.
“Definitely recommend! I looked at a lot of other daycares and The Learning Garden is by far the best! My daughter absolutely loves it there! The staff is wonderful and the amount of things my daughter learned was outstanding. ”Danielle A.
Does my child have to be potty trained for the toddler room?
No, we don’t require a child to be potty trained before going in to the toddler room. However, when the time comes and your child is ready we are certainly happy to help you with the process!
Has your toddler room been evaluated for safety?
Yes! Just as you would “child-proof” your home, we do the same thing in our centers. Knowing how active toddlers can be, we have made sure that we have the proper equipment, toys and more available to ensure your child is safe while they are with us.
What is the teacher to toddler ratio in this classroom?
