The first years of your child's life are pivotal. They are growing in their Cognitive capacity, Language Abilities, Motor Skills and Social Development.
Our infant program provides a safe, interactive and nurturing learning environment that encourages exploration, learning, and discovery. Our goal is to individualize each activity and meet the needs of every child in our program.
We work closely with our families to provide high quality care and build a trusting relationship that will continue to enhance everyday learning, provide meaningful experiences, and support active learning.
Our classroom is designed to promote healthy brain growth by recognizing that infants express how they feel with sounds and facial expressions, they are continuously listening and absorbing basic and distinct sounds of language which forms the foundation for speech, and that they are developing their sensory and motor skills by exploring the five senses.
Not only does our classroom provide a warm and inviting atmosphere for our infants but it builds a foundation that will continue to grow with them throughout their educational careers.

Welcome to Toddler Two at TPA. Our program provides a fun, inviting, and safe learning environment where we focus on our children’s curiosity in the world around them and their eagerness to try new things.
We recognize that our children are learning to control their environment through exploration, experimentation, and hands-on learning. It is important for us to make sure our student’s feel emotionally secure and are able to express their ideas. We provide an atmosphere that is physically safe for their activity level.
Through our learning centers, various activities including singing, dancing, story time, arts and crafts, and play time our children are becoming active learners and are able to explore their interests by asking questions.
In our classrooms we provide a diverse set of activities not only to support our student’s small and large motor skills development but to enable our students to strengthen their cognitive, language, physical, and social development.
We are excited to create an environment that thrives on discovery, encourages children to use their imagination, and enables our students to become creative, confident thinkers.
