Toddler Class: 18 months - 3 year Old

When you child reaches 18 month of age, home visits transition into the classroom setting. Our Toddler class is comprised of 18 month olds - 3 year olds, with students attending school Monday-Thursday 8am-12pm. When your child turns three they have the option of staying a full day at MSAD. Snacks and lunch are provided to students following our wellness policy for nutritional value. 
 
Our Toddler class focuses on language acquisition in a natural environment. Students explore their environment and develop a connection with theme-based material in the classroom. Through the use of play and social interaction with their peers, students build on early milestones and development in the developmental domains - language, cognition, social - emotional, gross/fine motor and self help.
