Toddler 1, Toddler 2, and Transitions
What an amazing time in your child's life!
Toddlers learn new skills every day. They need plenty of opportunities to explore and learn through creative play—and constant supervision to stay safe. Most importantly, they need to know they are loved and valued.
At The Son Rise School, we treat every child as a precious gift from God.
