Our Toddler Drop-Off Program is a play-based program for children who turn 2 years old on or before 9/1 of the current year. This is a feeder program for our preschool, offering a safe, nurturing environment with a focus on supporting development through play. There is a supportive 1:3 teacher to child ratio where social skills and conflict resolution skills are emphasized. Special attention is paid to offering a gentle and gradual separation process for each child and their caregiver. The gentle pace of separation allows for the child to feel connected to the program and the teachers before saying ‘see you later’ to their caregiver. Our curriculum introduces toddlers to a variety of experiences, including painting, sensory play, manipulative toys, beginning puzzles, books, blocks, sand and water play, and beginning dramatic play. Group experiences for toddlers include songs and a variety of music and rhythm experiences. Organic snacks are served.
