Children Playing

Waddlers (12 months- 18 months)

This room is the perfect transition from infants to toddlers. Your child will learn to walk and run, sit on chairs at the table for meals and activities and sleep on cots.

Our Waddler teachers and aides have extensive childcare experience and are certified in CPR and First Aid. When it comes to taking care of your little one, our staff is equipped with love, patience and childcare experience. From morning drop-off to evening pick-up, we promise to meet your child’s needs and keep them active and engaged.

Our Waddler schedule includes:

  • Music Time
  • Art Projects (Coloring, Painting, etc.)
  • Indoor and Outdoor Playtime
  • Sign Language
  • Numbers, Letters, Shapes, and Colors
  • Circle Time
  • Naptime
  • Caring Interaction

Daily activities focus on sharing, using words, active moving and interaction with peers and teachers. Our goal is to ready your waddler for toddlers by promoting communication, sharing and basic life skills.

Daily Connect

The Dawn of Discovery Waddler classroom is equipped with the Daily Connect smartphone app to communicate with parents throughout the day. Our staff will keep track of your little one’s eating, sleeping and diaper-changing schedule and send you text messages and photo updates.

This place has the most friendly and caring staff and an excellent facility. I am so impressed with how much everyone there car s. My son loves everyone including the cook. The curriculum is fantastic, my son retains so much. With two working parents he doesn't get as much time learning at home as I did growing up so when he comes home and knows his letters when we read it makes me so grateful to have found dawn of discovery. They constantly improve and adjust as needed and have been so good to us. I will be sad when my son moves on to full time school.
