Toddler I Program: (1 teacher/4 toddlers) ratio 1:4
Typical Ages: 18m-28m

Our Toddler I program learners are typically weaned from their bottles and are taking one nap. Most children in the toddler I program are feeding themselves and sleeping on cots for nap time. In this program our toddlers began to participate in a more structured routine, however it is still extremely flexible to meet their young needs. Our toddler I program begins focusing on communication, self-help, and social skills. Parents will have pre-conferences with our Toddler I teacher before transitioning to this program. Parents will receive real-time alerts throughout the day to inform them of their little one’s daily activities such as meals, moods, diapering, sleep patterns, and learning activities.
