The young toddler room at Lakewood Child Care Center offers a flexible, creative environment for children, with open-ended opportunities for exploration and play. Children in this age group learn by doing; they need to be challenged without being frustrated or overwhelmed. Children move to the young toddler room around 14 months of age when they are walking, sitting at the table for meals, and using a spoon.

The teachers plan and implement an age-appropriate, hands-on and fun curriculum to help our little ones grow and develop mentally, emotionally, and socially. Our young toddler classroom is a busy, language-rich, and nurturing environment.
