Junior 1

As new parents, your toddler is the most precious.  Nevertheless, providing a safe nourishing stimulating environment where they can freely explore and play and socialize even for a few hours a day, helps.  It not only provides the new mom with a few hours of much needed rest and time to finish her chores but also, the kid feels happy to be away and learn a few things with others outside home.  For now, gross motor development outpaces fine-motor development, but that’s only because a typical toddler doesn’t want to sit still long enough to do many activities that require significant dexterity.  We have a team of staff who will patiently help each child develop according to his or her own ability.
