Joyful Beginnings

Toddlers at The Garden School

We are creating a half-day toddler program that nourishes the senses and allows for self-initiated exploration and movement! Our warm, homelike environment provide a safe first step toward school.

A predictable rhythm shapes our time together, filled with song and activities that bring joy and goodness to the children's day.  Our 15 acre campus allows for the physical exploration of space that helps build self confidence, resilience, curiosity, and joy in the young child. 

The class will include up to 9 children ranging in age from 1 year-3.5 years, with a ratio of 1:4.  Both co-op and standard options are available, depending on a family's needs. The class hours are from 9am - 12:30pm.  

 Standard Co-Op*
5 days $6,580 $5,610
3 days (M, W, F) $4,920 $4,350
2 days (T, Th) $4,100 $3,880
