The daily program for toddlers and preschoolers provides children with the opportunity to participate in a variety of activities that encourage and stimulate growth in all areas of development and includes both indoor and outdoor play.  Children play outdoors for a minimum of one hour in the morning and one hour in the afternoon, weather permitting.

Each week, staff members plan and implement a program based on the observed interests and developmental needs of the children in their group.  A weekly program plan is posted in the Parent Information Area.

Toddlers and preschoolers are provided daily with lunch, as well as a morning and afternoon snack. The weekly menu is posted in the Parent Information Area.

The children also rest after lunch, for a period not exceeding two hours, on cots provided by the program.
