For over 25 years Toddler’s Haven has been
testing and enhancing our curriculums. Every day we learn more ways to
teach all kinds of children. Based on the theory that children learn
through play, our classroom routines encourage active involvement,
meaningful experimentation and reinforcement through repetition.
Schedules are designed to balance structure and free choice, as well as
active and quiet times.
Recognizing that children grow in
unpredictable stages, we treat each child as a unique individual,
working from the level each child has attained and moving forward a step
at a time. We teach a love of learning by allowing children to
experience their own stage of development and helping them to feel
success without pressure.
At Toddlers Haven we believe that the
most important lesson preschoolers can learn is self-confidence. Our
philosophy is based upon the premise that if children are loved &
accepted and thus develop their own self-confidence, they will be able
to work out solutions to their own problems. We believe that the best
way to prepare the child for their future is to encourage them to think
for themselves, to make their own decisions, and to trust themselves in
their two-, three- or four-year-old worlds.
We want them to feel
that they are worthwhile people and that they can function appropriately
for their various ages. Self-confidence is not bravado or bullying. If
children trust and respect themselves, they don't have to show off and
try constantly to gain attention. Children learn self-confidence through
playing with other children and by knowing that their teachers like them
and will give them help when needed. The approval of parents working at
the school, and their acceptance of each child's individual value, also
Our mission is to enrich the quality of
family life by enhancing the life experiences of the children in our
care. We strive to provide peace of mind to parents and create a mutual
respect between parents and teachers, a partnership for the benefit of
the child. We encourage daily communication between parents and center
staff. At Toddlers Haven our teachers and director are always available
to answer your questions, to review your child's progress, or to discuss
any concerns that you may have.
The parent is the key to the
child and our doors are always open to visits from mom, dad, grandma or
grandpa! In addition, parents and grandparents are frequently invited to
participate in our day-to-day activities, as guest speakers,
storytellers, and classroom volunteers. If you have special talents

some time at the center, Toddlers Haven cordially invites you to stop
