Teeter Tots looks and feels different than pre-COVID, but still focuses on social skills such as sharing, taking turns, and using words. The program continues to emphasize a nurturing first experience for your toddler in a play-based learning environment that will prepare your child for a preschool setting. Staff are experienced in assisting both children and families in working through separation anxiety. Children are required to bring a snack that is nut-free and easy for children to eat without any heating or preparation. Toilet training is not necessary. Please see the Teeter Tots sample schedule here.
