This development is enhanced by the guidance of a Master Teacher. Through hands-on play, development is encouraged in all areas of learning. The environment enhances the connection between the parent and the child and strengthens their relationship. The environment also supplies parents with connections to other parents to help support a strong sense of community. 

A parent or caregiver is required to attend the class with his/her toddler. While your child is not required to be potty trained, diapering may not be conducted on campus.  Please see the Family Handbook and/or the office if you have any questions.

The Parent-Toddler class aligns with the Arizona Toddler Early Learning Standards.

Parent-Toddler classes are one day a week and are available in the AM session.
