KIDSFIRST TODDLER PROGRAM

Toddlers are inquisitive – growing and learning fast. This is the time when children learn to use words and speak. KidsFirst teachers plan activities to help them explore and master their new skills. We believe that by promoting purposeful play in a safe, organized environment our toddlers develop and strengthen their new independence. Here are the results that parents can expect at KidsFirst:
