Hawthorne Daycare’s Toddler’s Program

Our toddler program provides a vast array of opportunities for children to build upon their existing strengths and skills as well as discover new ones. We nurture and guide children in their budding development as they explore learning experiences, develop self-control and become more independent. By exploring the “world” around them, the toddler child will develop the skills to become empathetic, nurturing, friendly, respectful to themselves as well as others, self-reliant, responsible and empowered individuals.

Individualized Care

Most of our toddlers and families are new to daycare and we strive to provide a bright, clean, safe, and nurturing environment for them. The qualified staff get to know each of our toddlers as individuals and work to program so that each one’s needs are met within the group setting. Self help skills such as feeding, serving self, dressing, and undressing are all skills that are worked on from the beginning. Toddlers feel pride when they can accomplish these tasks on their own. Toddlers also work on social skills such as turn taking, sharing and empathy. The teachers strive to build a trusting and reciprocal relationship with parents/guardians so that the toddlers have good role models and a stronger bond with those who are shaping their future
