In the Tender Care toddler classrooms, young children are encouraged to socialize, explore their independence, have fun and make friends. Each child has the opportunity to interact, play alone, and learn in small groups for greater one-on-one attention.

Our toddler teachers offer a hands-on interactive approach to learning designed to stimulate both cognitive and language development through the use of a high-quality childhood program called The Creative Curriculum®. This curriculum promotes appropriate developmental outcomes that are based on your child’s individual needs.

Our toddler learning experiences include:

  • Language development
    • Reading picture books
  • Math development
    • Sorting and counting
    • Identifying shapes
  • Fine and large motor skill development
    • Drawing and painting
    • Climbing and jumping
  • Science skill development
    • Hands-on exploration
    • Identifying colors

With Tender Care, your toddler can be on his/her way to a world of discoveries in a loving and nurturing environment!
