One of the ways we do this is through our Zumba and Yoga for Kids program. Your children will laugh and move without even realizing they’re working their bodies in targeted ways that boost their development.

Daycare for Toddlers in Davidsonville, MD

Toddlers

Looking for a toddler daycare that will stimulate your child’s curiosity and provide enriching educational experiences?

As your child becomes a toddler you will see their curiosity grow. They’ll ask more questions, become intrigued by everything that surrounds them, and notably, they’ll want to learn independently. That’s why we’ve built our curriculum for this age group to establish solid foundations in three key areas: language, science, and social skills. This ensures your child begins to develop knowledge and understanding of our comprehensive STEM curriculum while learning important interpersonal skills and developing physically and emotionally. Your child will learn in a fun, safe and colorful environment to encourage exploration through music, art, and interactive toys—all of which are central to our program of learning.

Infants

 

We are immensely proud of our infant program and our reputation for providing secure, loving and individual care for every child. At such a young age our infant group sessions firmly focus on establishing trust and building long lasting relationships between your child and our dedicated teaching and care staff. Our caregivers ensure your child is not only well cared for but also stimulated through play aided by visual and audio sensory toys.  Together, this helps children become confident and comfortable in their learning environment; in turn nurturing openness to new learning opportunities as they move up through our programs. Additionally, we we teach Sign Language to help promote communication.

We understand the importance of keeping you, our parents, up-to-date about your child’s progress which is why we provide daily reports for every child care. You are also welcome to call us at any time to check in on your little one and we’ll happily update you on their day.

Furthermore, you can be assured that when your child is ready to transition into our toddler program it feels like a natural progression. We invest time in having our infant and toddler program teachers interact with both groups to establish a sense of familiarity and unity.
