Our Toddler Classrooms (15 months to 2 years, 8 months )
The Guild of St. Agnes strives to provide your toddler a loving, safe, and engaging learning environment. During these crucial developmental stages, we provide your child with the quality care they deserve. Communication is a high-priority, and our teachers use our FAMLY app to communicate with you regarding your child’s daily activities. All of our toddler teachers and programs are licensed by the Department of Early Education and Care (EEC).

Toddler Classroom Daily Activities
Our toddlers are served 3 meals each day, Breakfast, Lunch, and Snack. Each meal is served within USDA compliance. Menus are provided to parents on a weekly basis. Your child’s meal will be recorded in your child’s FAMLY app daily activities note. Toddler meal serving sizes and preparation are based on their developmental stage.
Your child’s health and wellbeing are our top priority. We ensure classroom cleanliness and proper sanitizing techniques throughout the day. Your child will be changed regularly, and diapering occurrences will be recorded in your child’s FAMLY app daily activities note.
Language development is an important foundational element to a child’s growth. We promote language development through many different activities. Our teachers are well-trained in cultivating interactions with your child to promote positive language experiences such as singing songs, reading books, and social interactions directly from the teacher to your child.
Our classrooms are specifically designed with toddlers in mind! Alongside stimulating fine motor toys such as balls, coloring supplies, stacking toys, and simple puzzles, we have classroom equipment that encourages your child to utilize and improve their gross motor skills. Mats, indoor soft climbers, and mirrors with pull-up rails. Our outdoor areas are specifically for toddlers including low climbers, small tricycles and riding toys, sandboxes, balls, and other fun toys!
We know that growth and learning can be tiring! Your child will be provided with their own clean, comfortable, and safe cot/mat for resting. Our teachers will work with you to ensure consistency with at-home napping practices. Your child’s naps will be recorded and shared with you through our FAMLY app.
Children learn socialization through interactions with adults and their peers. Our toddler classrooms offer many great social settings for your child to learn and explore their social/emotional skills. We have dramatic play area, small house area, puppets, mirrors, emotion charts, and more!
Sensory stimulation is another important piece of growth and development. Our toddler programs provide many sensory toys and activities for your child. Classrooms are full of play dough, soft stuffed toys, musical toys, and much more!
Circle time is a small group activity where children interact with the teachers and each other. Circle time is used to introduce the calendar, weather, sing songs, and introduce each other. Developing social/emotional skills, practicing focus, and engaging with activities are some of the many benefits of group time.
