For children ages 12 months to 3 years old
Quality early childhood development for toddlers begins with a hands-on approach and plenty of opportunities for free-choice and independent learning. At Play and Learn child care centers, our teachers will lovingly guide your toddler through their earliest developmental milestones while singing, dancing, and playing. Your toddler’s busy day will include plenty of free play and quiet time. Time will be devoted to enrichment programs, special activities, and learning simple Spanish words. We keep families informed with My Day Progress Reports and weekly lesson plans on the classroom’s Family Communication Board. Your child’s developmental progress will be assessed on an on-going basis using the Ounce Scale.
Our toddlers and two’s utilize the nationally-recognized HighReach® curriculum that focuses on the following areas of development:
- Listening and speaking skills
- Social interactions
- Problem solving

Two’s HighReach Curriculum (ages 2-3 years)
