The Early Learners classrooms provide an environment where our youngest children can learn and grow individually while also participating in cooperative group play and lessons. Daily activities provide an opportunity for strengthening language skills, refining gross motor skills, developing fine motor skills and encouraging independence.
Our progressive curriculum allows toddlers to thrive from the comfort of routine while also developing coordination, cultivating concentration, and awakening their natural curiosity by allowing freedom to explore and discover their environment. Each day provides engagement in play, reading, art and conversation.
