The Nest: A Community for Toddlers
The Young Children’s Community serves children who are comfortably walking, in a small and intimate group. We offer a flexible schedule with both half day and full day options. Children do not need to be toilet-trained. Teachers will help children develop bathroom independence when they are ready.
We are committed to providing our toddlers with engaging, meaningful activities to:
– provide experiences that stimulate the senses
– enrich the child’s vocabulary and understanding of language
– provide time for the child to repeat and master activities
– give children the opportunity to gain a sense of self-esteem, self-worth, and self-confidence
Children are taught to listen to their bodies and are encouraged to eat and rest as needed.
The day will include a morning meeting, exploration of the classroom, individual lessons, open snack, time outdoors, and a family style group lunch.
