Toddler Daycare & Childcare Early Education

Your toddler will participate in fun learning activities and creative playtime that encourages exploration — while introducing structure and an established routine. These experiences help make learning fun!

The foundation of our toddler curriculum is Creative Curriculum, a nationally-recognized, state-approved program that supports your child in developing critical skills. We enhance this curriculum with the latest research into brain-based development, available only at The Sunshine House. As your toddler develops, we create structures and routines to meet your little one’s ever-increasing skills.
