Waddlers Room - 

In general, all of our toddlers follow a schedule which insures that a part of each day be spent on a large and fine motor skills, outdoor play, indoor free play and a time for nap. As our day is a twelve hour day, your child will see a change of shift in teachers, usually between 2:30-3pm. The Toddler Room teacher to child ratio is 1-7.

Infants are kept in a separate environment in an attempt to cut down on germs. Each infant's day is geared to the baby's individual schedule. Unless specifically requested, we do not attempt to put babies on a rigid schedule, although we do offer them a consistent routine. Our infant room has a teacher=child ratio of 1-4.
