Toddler Time is offered through NPNS for children 18 months to 2½ years old. It is a mommy/daddy/caregiver and me program that offers a less structured version of the preschool program. Toddler Time gives each child the necessary environment to develop social skills, strengthen their ability to take directions, and improve motor skills. Our goal is to help parents learn how to help their children by using imagination, caring, exploration, and sharing. Our qualified teacher will help each parent and child discover all the wonders of becoming part of a group experience.
Toddler Time is also an excellent way to transition your child into our preschool. Most children from Toddler Time go on to attend our preschool program, and are automatically given priority for enrollment over children on our waiting list. Not only is this program an enriching experience for you and your child, the bonds that are formed among the children during this time will carry over into their preschool years and beyond, making each transition into new environments less stressful and more rewarding for your child.
Toddler Time runs on Thursday from 9:15 am – 10:45 am
