"KCC Toddler Program"

Toddlers

Our Toddlers spend their days engaged in activities that promote learning and discovery. Whether it’s walking up the stairs, sliding down the slide of our specially designed loft (PQ), stacking building blocks, measuring water in our water table or playing with their favorite age-appropriate toy, your child will learn as they discover and explore.

You will see our teachers “down on the floor” interacting with your child. At Kids’ Care Club, we consistently listen and talk with the children – encouraging their emotional and language development.

The teachers provide a perfect balance of nurturing, playtime, and learning each day through daily group activities that also help boost your child’s social skills. We provide age appropriate activities and materials that develop confidence, self-esteem, and a love of learning in small and large groups. Learning areas focus on language, mathematics, creative arts, dramatic play, and sensory exploration.
