TODDLERS

If you're looking for an exciting learning environment in which your Toddler can blossom, then Millard Children's Academy is just the place! We cater to the natural inquisitiveness and burgeoning independence of Toddlers. At this age, children are mastering developmental milestones by leaps and bounds. Our patient and energetic staff will encourage your child as they enhance gross motor skills, engage in social interactions, potty train, increase vocabulary, and learn ABCs, 123s, and colors and shapes.

Beginning at 18 months, our younger Toddlers spend their day in our festive Under the Sea themed room. Their slightly older counterparts romp around in our indoor Jungle-themed room, also known as the Trans Room, where they will remain until their 3rd birthday. All will utilize our large Lower Level gym, and spend time on our age-appropriate Lower Level playground, weather-permitting. By this age, children thrive on routine. Having a stable, yet flexible, schedule provides youngsters with a feeling of security and helps them to make sense of their world.

Throughout your child's day, they will be learning social skills such as taking turns, sharing, group play, and manners in an environment that fosters healthy self-esteem and encourages respect of self and others. Our trained staff will use a variety of techniques to facilitate learning through play including singing songs, finger-plays, simple games, puzzles, books, toys, and art projects that challenge abilities and stimulate the imagination. We have a minimum of at least one staff member for every 6 children, with management and support staff ready to help when needed.

Busy Toddlers need plenty of rest! At this age the children sleep on nap mats that are disinfected daily after each use. To facilitate comfort, parents are encouraged to bring a blanket, small pillow, and a small stuffed animal or "lovey" for nap time. Crib sheets fit perfectly on our nap mats, and aid in relaxation as well. Please remember to take these items home at least weekly to be washed.

To assist with the potty-training process, we have toddler-sized toilets and lowered sinks which further promote the children's independence. You will receive a Daily Sheet that records your child's nutritional intake, sleeping times, potty history, and information about your child's day. In addition, our staff is always happy to take your phone calls to discuss your child's day or needs.

Like our other areas, there are no registration fees, enrollment fees, activity fees, supply fees, maintenance fees, or contracts to sign. There is NO security deposit required to hold a toddler spot.

We'd love to show you these busy, colorful, fun-filled rooms! Please call or e-mail us to obtain current rates and availability information, or to schedule your tour today! Contact information can be found on our CONTACT US page.
