Toddlers & Preschoolers

Toddlers, children who are 1 to 3 years old, are ever changing.

Toddlers like interactive toys

Having a toddler can be rewarding and challenging at the same time. We all know the familiar phrase of "terrible twos" when children begin to seek their independence. Toddler time is an exciting time when kids learn to walk and talk. It can also be demanding as they learn to use the potty or try to climb the cabinets. We are here to help your child learn and grow in a safe environment and to give you support during the stressful times.
