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!

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

Snack and Parent Connections
Children pause for group snack and parents take the opportunity to share information and discuss parenting topics with each other and the Beginnings director.

Specials Samplers
A unique strength or our Beginnings program is instruction by specialist teachers in Spanish, art, music, drama, physical education, library, and guidance. 

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