Toddler Program

A toddler is naturally curious, energetic, loveable, happy and developing independence. They thrive on adult contact and interaction, respond excitedly to familiarities, and look for approval in new situations. At Funsteps Preschool and Childcare, we embrace these qualities and use what comes natural to toddlers to build upon their learning experiences and care for them each day. We provide a safe, loving, nurturing environment for children to explore and act on their curiosities. Our teachers and program are dedicated to enriching their lives and enhancing their language, social, emotional, cognitive and physical development.

Preschool Prep Two Year Old Program

A two year old child has the world at their fingertips. They are curious, energetic, becoming more expressive of thoughts and feelings, expanding their vocabulary and language skills, becoming more independent, beginning to socialize with their peers and developing an increased coordination of their motor skills while exploring and discovering the world around them. At Funsteps Preschool and Childcare, teachers provide them with a nurturing environment that embraces this growth and development so they can happily and safely play, explore, create, discover and learn.
