1 Year – 18 Months Class

The children at this age are full of energy and we allow them to explore and grow. We will channel this energy and enthusiasm by encouraging floor play, dancing, outdoor time, and a variety of learning songs and games. Carefully planned activities to promote curiosity will allow your toddler to exercise their independence. They explore their world through all their senses. The teachers lead children through age appropriate activities specially designed to improve coordination and increase verbal and problem solving skills.

Teachers

Felita Burney – Rainbow Lead Teacher

I have been working in early child care for over 30 years. I believe working with children is my calling. I love being able to see a child achieve their goals and see their expressions as they learn new things. I believe it is my job to help them learn academics and how to live a good life.

India Matthews – Lead Lollipop & Rainbow Teacher

I’ve worked with children for over 2 years and I received my CDA in 2018. My favorite parts of the day are when I get to help the kids do art projects and decorate the classrooms. I love working with the non-mobile and mobile infants.
