The GraceWorks Early Childhood Program is licensed by the Department of Early Education for Children (DEEC) to provide year-round care for a combined count of 52 children/day for our toddler,  pre-school and pre-kindergarten programs.

In our Toddler Room children range from  15 months through 2.9 years old. They are guided to discover and explore the world around them.  Children in this age group are moving from the dependency of infancy to the independence of preschool years.  The emphasis is on helping children to develop their self-reliance in a supportive environment.

The Toddler curriculum follows guidelines approved by the Department of Early Education and Care (DEEC).
 
GraceWorks has a very specific transition plan for toddlers when they first attend GraceWorks and begin the process of getting acclimated to the classroom's routine, teachers and other children.    Please click here to see the transition plan for toddlers.

Toddler teachers are Nancy G., Anna P.,  Kim P. Jessica R. and Taylor S.

We have two toddler rooms, one licensed for 7 children per day and one licensed for 9 children per day.
