Your child is provided with a safe and developmentally appropriate environment filled with toys and activities to promote social skills, self-help, language development, and exploration. Each infant is assigned to their own caregiver and crib. We provide every infant with clean sheets, blankets, bibs and burpies, as well as meals and snacks.

Flowers: Daisies I & II
Toddlers, Ages 18 months to approximately 3 years
We encourage play through developmentally appropriate themed learning centers as an avenue for learning since socialization is an integral part of your toddler’s development. At this age you may be very eager for your child to begin toilet training. Toilet training can be a very stressful time for you and your child. It requires consistency, patience, and open communication between you and the teacher. To the best of our ability, we will make every effort possible to support your toileting routine at home. Our teachers are very patient and will encourage your child in a positive manner so they may thrive and develop a good self-esteem about themselves and their accomplishments.
