CDC's Toddler Program

Toddler Program

Toddlers at CDC have fun learning through play.  Every classroom has a schedule that provides smooth transitions between activities.  The toddler area is a toilet training area at CDC and the teachers and parents work together encouraging each child when they show readiness.

The following daily schedule reflects how your child will be spending their day in our care.  A lot of hugs are included.  Our toddler teaching curriculum is “Adventures for Toddlers”, a curriculum designed for children from 18 to 36 months, developed through a contract with the Division of Child Care and Early Childhood Education.
