Quality Time Childcare Toddler Program –
Your Two Year Old (2-3 Years)

As toddlers develop friendships, self-esteem, and curiosity, our Quality Time Toddler program will help them explore their world in a safe and nurturing environment.

Each day is filled with fun activities that excite and develop toddlers, giving them the comfort and confidence to speak those first few important words, as well as make their first friends. Our unique curriculum is based on the philosophy that young children learn best through hands-on experiences.

At this age, children are making new discoveries daily. As two-year-olds begin to exert their independence, our Preschool program opens their eyes to a world of learning, sharing, and exploring. Our balanced approach in the classroom engages young minds with a blend of music, art, and movement, as well as the early education fundamentals they’ll need as they continue on to preschool.

Your Toddler’s Day

Quality Time’s toddler program enables your child to grow in confidence and learn to walk tall in their new world. Your toddler will begin to experience the world in new ways at Quality Time Childcare. We provide child-directed activities such as art and sensory time. We help toddlers adjust to transitions between activities throughout the day, and accommodate individual differences and developmental abilities.
