More than Just Toddler Daycare

Foundations School recognizes the importance of a strong infant and toddler program going far beyond babysitting. Toddlers have the most brain activity of any age, and they deserve more than just having their basic needs met. We balance individualized care with an interactive, explorative learning environment providing our children with nurturing, consistent, and loving care. Come and visit today to see the difference we can make for your child. Because we maintain such low teacher to child ratios in all of our classrooms teachers have more time for each student. This promotes deeper learning as each child learns to trust their teachers, joyfully explore the classroom environment, make discoveries, care for others and begin to see themselves as competent learners.

Interest Based Toddler Curriculum

Similar to the Pre-School curriculum, Foundations uses Creative Curriculum as a basis for its infant and toddler activities and assessments, helping children develop a broad range of abilities by giving them opportunities in social/emotional, physical, cognitive and language development. The curriculum is personalized for the children, based upon the interests they express in their classroom and includes introductory STEM-based elements.

Curriculum planning at this age level is based on:

  1. understanding of developmentally appropriate objectives;
  2. sensitivity to children’s personal experiences and interests;
  3. knowing that children learn through first-hand observation, play, and direct experience; and
  4. careful observation of all their communication-both verbal and non-verbal and their interaction with their environment, other children and teachers.

Daily progress of curriculum achievements are found in the daily Discovery Reports. These reports are emailed to parents daily with photos and comments, so parents can closely follow their child’s learning experience and communicate with teachers about their learning.

Hours of Operation: Monday through Friday – 6:30 a.m. – 6:30 p.m.

Toddler Child Care Admissions Process

Step 2: Meet with the Admissions Director to review and answer any questions you may have.

Step 3: Submit the $250 to hold your space until enrollment date.

Limited Availability
Foundations for the Future is open year round and accepts applications and new students year round if space is available. Our Toddlers still enjoy very low teacher to child ratios. If you are expecting to enroll we recommend that you pre-register for your space as far in advance as possible. To provide students with stability, however, dis-enrollments are accepted at the end of each semester. To secure a space in the toddlers classroom, or to be offered a space when one becomes available, you should submit the registration fee.

Conditions and Terms of Admission
Students are admitted on a yearly basis, with the school year beginning in August. In May, all families who are in good standing will be invited to re-enroll for the following school year and given a priority registration time, prior to new student open enrollment dates. Foundations for the Future admits students of any gender, race, color and national origin to all rights, privileges, programs and activities accorded or made available to students.

Critical Brain Growth Years 1-3

“Like constructing a house, brains are built upon a strong foundation. This starts before birth, and is very important during the first three years of life. At birth, a baby’s brain contains 100 billion neurons, roughly as many nerve cells as there are stars in the Milky Way, and almost all the neurons the brain will ever have. The number of synapses per neuron is 2,500 when born, but by age two or three, it’s about 15,000 per neuron”

By age three a child’s mind has pared away synapses are not being utilized.  Thinking patterns and appitutes are primarily formed.  This is the primary reason Foundations School begins working with children to engage their thinking as early as possible.
