The curriculum our toddlers engage in daily emphasizes exploration and exercise. The teachers work hard to prepare your child for a more structured classroom environment. Children at this age, often times, are at very different developmental levels. Our teachers recognize that their toddler curriculum must provide a variety of activities with which to reach each child’s individual, developmental needs. They provide a well balanced program involving many active, gross motor activities and plenty of opportunities for the little ones to investigate and discover the world around them. It is important for our little ones to practice the important self-help skills necessary to grow socially and emotionally, while gaining self confidence along the way!
I enjoy watching the children grow and learn. I’ve attended Ivy Tech for Early Childhood Development and I have over 20 years experience working in childcare facilities. I took a few years off to raise two beautiful daughters of my own. In my classroom I wish to create a fun, safe environment for the children to learn, explore, and grow.

I love watching the children grow, learn, and develop, it is a very rewarding experience! I have always loved working with children and have a Bachelor Degree from Purdue in Speech Language Hearing Sciences. In my classroom my overall goal is to create a safe and loving environment where each child is able to learn.

I love seeing social skills developing in children. It is a process but once they get it, it is wonderful to see. I have a Bachelor’s degree from Indiana University in Kindergarten/Primary Education with a focus on Early Childhood Development. I have worked as an assistant and lead teacher in several different childcare facilities for over 15 years. My overall classroom goal is to create an enjoyable place for the children to come. I want the kids to feel safe, secure, happy, and loved. Once all of this is in place . . . all of the ABC’s and 123’s will come naturally.
