enrollment patterns. The toddler program is designed to stimulate growth

mind. Designed to prepare your child to express themselves and learn
about the world around them in a safe, warm and affectionate atmosphere
that allows each child to know how special he or she is. The children
are encouraged to use self discipline to redirect themselves into
Kindergarten through sixth
