Toddler Program

Ages 18 Months — 2 Years, 8 Months

One of the best ways to begin a lifetime of learning enjoyment is with an early start at Greentrees. Children ages 2 to 2 years 8 months, are Greentrees’ youngest students. They are also our most enthusiastic! They are eager to explore their world, and we nourish and support their youthful curiosity and readiness to learn.

For many of these toddlers, Greentrees provides their first real experience within a social setting outside of the home. In the classroom and on the playground, the children gain valuable social skills and learn to interact well with each other and with their teachers. Toddlers get results by using their words instead of acting out.

Greentrees also plays an important role in the successful transition to potty training. We love our toddlers and want them to succeed. Here they will learn to grow into confident Greentrees alumni who are well prepared for Kindergarten and First Grade.

We are very happy to be able to offer this specially designed program for toddlers. Diapers/pull-ups are acceptable. Our program is available 2, 3, 4 and 5 days a week from 9:00 am to 11:45 am. The toddler program follows our regular school calendar.
