We have taken the best of all types of child care available and put them into one complete package. A parent can leave with the confidence that their child/ren are in a safe and caring environment. Our job is to focus on each child’s social, physical and emotional development. A child’s self-esteem, independence, and ability to learn need to be taught through positive experiences in and out of the classroom. Part of our job is to help you prepare your child for their upcoming years. If we work together, this can be obtained. It is Toddler Town’s philosophy that children mature to reach their growth potential when they are provided with a stimulating, inviting and loving environment. Your child will be involved in activities that will enrich their social, emotional, and physical growth every day. Learning experiences in art, music, dramatic play, fine motor skills, gross motor skills, and basic readiness for kindergarten will be provided.
Good communication between parents and staff is essential. This handbook is an easy reference to all of the questions you may have. If a question comes up that you are unable to find an answer for, please ask. Also keep us informed of your concerns, needs and comments. You are important to us! A written Child care plan is available for you to review at any time, just ask a teacher or director for a copy.
