Our Toddler Care Program Helps Your Child Explore Their World!
Young Scholars Academy child care has an amazing toddler care program for energetic and on-the-move Toddlers!
After your child’s first year, they are usually ready developmentally to move to our Toddler Program where the environment, equipment and activities are designed to further promote cognitive, emotional and physical development.
Our toddler care classrooms are available to children aged 12-24 months. Your child spends their days at Young Scholars Academy very busy learning.
Children spend their time creating, exploring, and listening to music, as well as singing, finger plays and listening to and participating in stories.
Gross motor play is encouraged by activity walkers, climbing mats, push and pull toys and our state of the art toddler playground. Toddlers are introduced to beginning sign language if they haven’t already been in our Infant program.
Our certified teachers work on social skills with the children to encourage sharing and group play. They even start to form social relationships and we walk the kids through early problem solving skills.

Now at no point within our program will your child not be able to advance to the next classroom because as you all know, children go when THEY are ready to go!
Beginning in our 18 month classroom we have bathrooms located in each of the classrooms so the kids have access at all times. We’ve had many kids in this classroom begin to show interest and so we’ll work with your family to determine the best steps to conquer potty training.
The best way that your child is going to become fully potty trained is when there is consistency and communication between the parents and educators. When your family comes in to meet their teachers, we encourage you to discuss the best plan for success!
Two Year Old Program
Our two year old program, “Explorers,” and “Preschool A” are designed to accommodate the traits and needs of a child who is growing towards independence. At our child care program, your two-year old is entering the world of change. They’re more vocal, they’re busier and they’re fast! We break up our two year old classrooms into six month increments so that your child can be in a space that’s developmentally appropriate for them.
Physical, social, emotional and intellectual growth is at an all-time high so our daycare (early childhood) teachers are provided with appropriate resources to promote a readiness for Preschool.
Spanish is a daily part of our curriculum in the Explorers and Preschool A programs. We also include social studies, math, science and language arts. Potty training usually begins approximately at this age and in these classrooms but that’s completely up to the child and family.
When a child starts to show an interest in using the toilet, the experts at Young Scholars Academy will discuss an appropriate plan of action with the parent.
We often like to refer to our twos classrooms as “controlled chaos” but our amazing Child Care Team members do a great job at working through the twists and turns of being a two year old!
