    The Toddler classroom is an important stepping stone between children being dependent babies and becoming independent two-year-olds.  Our babies move from the Infant room to the Toddler room around their first birthday when they are walking, no longer on a bottle, and can take one set nap a day.  Toddlers begin to show their independence as they go from sleeping in cribs to sleeping on mats, from drinking bottles and eating baby food to eating school-provided lunch and snacks, and following the more structured Toddler daily schedule.

    In addition to the early concepts our babies were learning in the Infant room, our Toddlers also begin exploring math concepts such as shapes, numbers, and counting, doing more hands-on sensory and science experiments, and creating more child-driven art projects.  Our Toddlers are always very excited to experience outside play time in this classroom on our smaller playground, in addition to having music class once a week with our music teacher, Miss Mikela!

    The teacher to child ratio for this age group is also 1 to 4, however our Toddler room is licensed to have up to eight children at any time, with two teachers.  The larger amount of children allowed in this room helps ease our Toddlers into the eventual transition into our two-year-old class, where the ratio changes to 1 to 5 and we are licensed to have up to 10 children in one room.

  • What to Bring From Home?

    If I am a Toddler and learning to get up and go, I will need supplies for my journey! I will need:
    • Bedding

      A fitted crib sheet and a blanket for my big kid cot. Please make sure my blanket will fit in my cubby!

    • Extra Clothing

      Plenty, so I am prepared for whatever my day brings. (Weather appropriate). Don’t forget shoes for outside time!

    • Soothers

      Binkies/Pacifiers, teething rings, etc. (if I still use them).

    • Diapering Supplies

      Diapers, wipes, diaper cream (if I use it), etc. (If cloth diapers are used, please provide a sealable bag for soiled diapers).

    • “It’s the greatest feeling when your child can’t wait to go to daycare. When they call their teachers their best friends and when you know those teachers love your baby almost as much as you. I know my baby is safe, loved, and learning more everyday. From the facility, learning curriculum, multiple extra activities, fun crafts, and the staff I wouldn’t want to go anywhere else.” A

      --Bethany H.
    • “The team at Kidz Academy are awesome. They are compassionate, attentive, and friendly. They made me feel comfortable, safe, and my daughter LOVES it there! When she started Kinder this past fall, I feel like she was well-prepared and even ahead of the game. Her KA teachers did a great job in setting her up for success.”

      --Jamie K.
    • “My son is 3 yrs old and has been at Kidz Academy since he was 6 months old. The kids are always doing fun projects/activities and constantly learning new things. I can’t imagine having anyone else watch my son. I always know he’s in good hands at Kid Academy with their amazing staff.”

      --Kamae S.
    • “I could never say enough good things about Kidz Academy, we moved our daughter here 1.5 years ago after being in home until she was 4. She adores Kidz Academy so much that now that she’s in Kinder she asks when she gets to go back to KA for a whole day because she misses it. The teachers are the perfect amount of professional and nurturing and we’ve become so close with many of the teachers. This was hands down the best decision we’d made.”

      --Chastidy M.
    • “My son loves going here! I’m a first time mom, so when it came time for me to go back to work, I was very nervous about leaving him anywhere I wasn’t! The whole staff was amazing in helping me feel at ease! They sent me updates and pictures about his day! I never worry about him when he’s there now! I know he’s in good hands!”

      --Amanda B.
    • “I have been bringing my 4 year old son here since October and he absolutely loves it! He is learning his alphabet and numbers, the days and months of the year and all the seasons. Kidz is AMAZING! He loves all his teachers and I love that the building is always CLEAN and the teachers are very nice to the parents. Definitely would recommend to family and friends.”

      --Jennifer S.
  • Questions and Answers
    What does the school supply and what do I need to bring?

    Kidz Academy supplies a healthy and balanced morning snack, lunch, and afternoon snack each day for every child. Parents are asked to bring diapers, wipes, bedding, and extra clothing. Pacifiers or other soothers can be brought for children who still use them.

    How do I know what my toddler has done during the day?

    Kidz Academy now uses an app called Kid Reports through which a daily report is sent home every night, outlining every meal the child was fed, when and what type of diaper changes occurred, when and for how long they slept, and any other important notes from their day. Pictures and important messages are uploaded by the class teacher and parents are able to check in on the app live throughout the day.

    Parents are also encouraged to call and check in on their little ones as often as they wish, and if Media Consent is given, will have pictures of their child’s activities posted on the Kidz Academy Facebook page.

    What schedule does the Toddler Room follow?

    As children transition from the Infant Room to the Toddler Room we begin working on getting them all on the same schedule. Nap is at the same time every day, as are morning and afternoon meals. Play and teacher-directed activities may vary from day to day, but we recommend that children arrive by 9:30am in order to not miss out on any of our fun activities!

    What qualifications do the Toddler Teachers have?

    All of the teachers at Kidz Academy are CPR and First Aid certified, with years of experience and training in the early childhood education field. We have two teachers in our Toddler room who are with our little ones the majority of the day. If the Lead Teachers are out for the day or on their lunch, we have one or two teachers who will step in for them.
