We are pleased to care for your toddler, ranging from ages 12 to 36 months. The toddler program is housed in three classrooms with each classroom being directed by an experienced teacher with the support of USD student child care assistants.

Parents of toddlers can expect:

  • A 5:1 staff-to-child ratio
  • Staff members trained in current educational practices
  • Monthly lesson plans
  • Creative curriculum which encourages toddlers to use all of their senses of discovery to master and integrate skills and language, learn new activities and use new materials, focus on learning through active play and interaction
  • Family-style meals
  • Fenced, outdoor playground designed for toddlers

Special care is placed on modeling social awareness and to acknowledge and respect emotions. At the Vucurevich Children's Center, toddler-aged children learn to make new friends and begin the process of separation.
