Our Programs


Walking changes everything!  Your toddler wants to go everywhere and do everything. At Way to Grow, our well-trained teachers take great care to create a well-charted toddler territory geared for exploration, excitement and exercise. Our hands-on child care programs cover as much ground as possible to help shape your toddler’s brain, personality, behavior and health.

Our toddler program also meets or exceeds state-mandated teacher-to-child ratios. And, you may receive a log of your child’s feeding, sleeping, diapering and learning activities every day, so you can be confident we’ve provided a range of activities designed to engage your toddler and encourage fine and gross motor skills, language development and an understanding of caring relationships.

  • A snuggly story time.
  • Lunch and naptimes to nourish and rest your child’s growing mind and body.
