Toddler Care and Preschool

Our toddler and preschool classrooms are full of energy, laughter, and learning! Our play-based, Reggio-inspired approach provides toddlers with a nurturing environment, giving each child the opportunity to build strong connections with teachers and friends while developing physical, social, emotional, and pre-academic skills. Weekly visits from music and yoga specialists also encourage toddlers to express their natural curiosity and eagerness to learn.

We serve a morning snack and kosher-style lunch for both our toddler and preschool programs. Toddlers also receive an afternoon snack and have nap/rest time from 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm.
