Toddler Childcare Program

Childcare for children 16 months to 33 months

Fraser School®’s toddler childcare program provides guided, developmentally appropriate activities, combined with nurturing childcare. As a quality childcare center, we strive to maintain child-to-staff ratio of 5:1 or 6:1 ratio for toddlers, based upon criteria set forth by the National Early Childhood Program Accreditation.

Our toddler curriculum balances each child’s individual needs, while stressing early socialization skills.
  • All toddler classroom schedules include individual playtime where children can explore their environment, and teachers can facilitate learning and social skills.
  • The schedule also includes short group times, where children sit together and hear stories or sing.
    • Teachers provide various experiences with music, movement, and exploration, twice per week.
  • There are snack/mealtimes, gross motor time (in the gym or on the playground), nap time, and diapering/toileting times.
  • Much of a toddler’s developmental growth involves learning communication.
    • Whether that communication involves oral language or sign language, children’s vocabularies increase exponentially during the toddler years.
  • Another area of growth for toddlers includes the identity of self and gaining independence.
    • Toddlers practice skills like self-feeding, self-soothing, and possibly even early toileting attempts.

Families who do not need childcare but want an early childhood beginning program can enroll their child from 9:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m., two days a week, three days a week, or five days a week.
