Toddler Childcare & Early Education Programs

In our toddler daycare & education program, your toddler is making great developmental strides -- from first steps to potty training!

We respond to your toddler's growing curiosity, energy and enthusiasm with fun learning activities and creative playtime, while introducing structure and a routine. These experiences help make learning fun!

Your toddler's teacher will plan a day that includes story time, outdoor play, song and dance. We also work with you when your child is ready to start the potty training process.

Our Curriculum

The foundation of our toddler daycare curriculum is Creative Curriculum®, a nationally-recognized, award-winning 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.
