Program

1 year olds

At 1, children are meeting new challenges as fast as they come. Crawling, walking, and eventually running. Children learn best if they are in a stimulating environment. Music, stories, outdoor play, art projects, and learning simplicities envelop much of the day. Our caregivers are dedicated to helping each child develop these skills through a trusting and loving relationship. Updates are given throughout the day on meal times, nap times, and all activities accomplished each day.
