Programs for children ages 18 months – 3 years are provided at our Prairie Lane, Underwood Hills and Westbrook sites. These programs are based on the developmental stages of toddlers, including activities that help with language skills, gaining a sense of independence and feeling comfortable being separated from parents. Children participate in sensory activities, songs, games, pretend play and creative art activities. Toddlers are give ample opportunity for fine and gross motor development.
