Beginnings Parent & Toddler Enrichment Program

Take the first steps toward a lifelong love of learning — together.

A Place to Grow

In the earliest years of a child’s life, every moment is a milestone. And in our Beginnings Program for children 12-24 months old, we make those milestones even more meaningful. This is a crucial time in your toddler’s growth and development, and this program is designed to help them stretch their imaginations and strengthen their sense of discovery.

Adventure is around every corner in our engaging, immersive learning environment, where your child engages in rich experiences designed to develop their motor, early language and literacy, and socialization skills—all led by our team of dedicated teachers and counselors, and with you at their side every step of the way.

Every book, every activity, and every movement is another chance to instill confidence and explore something new. And best of all, you won’t be doing this alone. You’ll become part of a community of parents, teachers, and counselors who are here to answer questions and share experiences. Because when you’re surrounded by people who are invested in your child’s growth, they’re more likely to reach their full potential.

Sample Beginnings Class Schedule

Peak inside a Beginnings classroom!

As children and their parents arrive, they will ease into the morning’s experiences by exploring together our construction, drama, sensory, art, and literacy stations, which inspire little ones to explore with their hands and hearts the rich resources of the Beginnings classroom.

Throughout the Beginnings mornings, parents will have an opportunity to share information and learn from each other, discuss parentings topics with the Beginnings director, and, along with their children, experience specialized instruction curated for the youngest of learners.

When it’s time for the busy Beginnings activities to come to a close, children gather in our circle space to share a closing song or a special book before heading home.
