Toddler Program

My First Days Daycare & Learning Center offers State Licensed toddler programs. Our trusted toddler programs follow the State of Ohio Standards in Early Childhood Education through Creative Curriculum which focuses on pre-school readiness, Literacy and Math enrichment, Science, Social Studies, social and emotional development, health, fitness and diversity. My First Days’ toddler program is a great way for your child to interact with other children and gain the social skills they will need as they grow and mature into pre-schoolers. Our toddler program provides care for children from 18 Months to age three (36 months). Close relationships are built with each child through our attention and quality time spent.

The Toddler Exploration Program
Each specially designed toddler area is built to accommodate this age group, which is active and mobile and ready for expanded exploration opportunities. Soft play equipment to enhance large muscle development and special concepts. Low shelves contain picture-labeled containers to encourage self-help. Your toddler can easily help themselves to the materials and, eventually, as they transitions to our Early Preschool program, help put them back as well.

Toddlers are busy little learners with big, new worlds to explore. At this age they are learning so many exciting new things each and every day. They are constantly meeting new challenges as fast as they can. They are learning how to communicate with other children as well as how to handle their many emotions. Their mobility and activity level expands and guides them to the next development stage. My First Days Daycare & Learning Center encourages their independence, teaches self awareness, and nurtures language and motor skills daily.
