Toddler Care and Education for 1-2 Year Olds

When your child is all over the place, they’re discovering their world.  Toddlers learn best in safe, loving places where they can explore, in their own way.  The activities for this age group are built around toddlers’ limitless curiosity and their natural desire to push boundries.

Your toddler’s early education at Creative Hands

Our five areas of focus give your child endless opportunities to learn and grow.

Communicating With Others
Creative Hands encourages your toddler to interact with others.
We use storytelling and word games to help your child practice imitating and responding, asking questions, and following simple directions; provide practice naming familiar items; and support rich vocabulary development.

 Building Brain Power

Creative Hands helps your toddler begin to learn about the world.
We provide opportunities to identify basic colors and shapes; bring concepts of cause-and-effect to life through storytelling, music, and art; and model and encourage your child to practice sorting and matching.

Making New Friends
Creative Hands supports your toddler in growing socially and emotionally.
We encourage interactions with other children in group activities; guide the development of sharing and listening skills; model how to express emotions appropriately; and guide your child to learn classroom routines.

Growing a Healthy Body
Creative Hands provides ways for your toddler to gain increased body awareness.
We teach body parts through stories, song, and rhyme; promote self-care skills such as feeding, cleaning, and dressing; and support large-motor development and eye-hand coordination through a variety of activities such as kicking balls, tossing, writing, drawing, and lacing.

Nurturing Creativity
Creative Hands helps your toddler develop individual talents.
We encourage pretending and role-playing through play with props; support individual expression through participation in group activities; and promote self-expression through art and music.


Learning through play is an essential part of early childhood education.

Activities are designed around keeping your child’s imagination stiumlated and eager to keep learning.
