At Primary Beginnings, we’re delighted to offer toddler care services for children around the ages of one to three years old. We understand the significance of this developmental phase and the need for consistent, dedicated care and attention. Your child’s journey from infancy to toddlerhood is a crucial one, and we are here to make it as smooth and enriching as possible.
Small Student-to-Teacher Ratio
At Primary Beginnings, we take great pride in offering a learning environment that prioritizes individualized attention and care. One of the key factors that sets us apart is our commitment to maintaining a small student-to-teacher ratio. We believe that a low ratio of students to teachers is essential for providing the highest quality of care and education for your toddler.
Our small student-to-teacher ratio allows us to focus on the unique needs and developmental milestones of each child. By keeping the class sizes small, we can ensure that your child receives the best toddler care and the personalized attention they require.
At Primary Beginnings, our commitment to your child’s well-being extends to ensuring a seamless transition from infant care to toddler care. We recognize the importance of continuity and familiarity during these formative years. Our aim is to maintain a comfortable and nurturing environment that not only eases the transition for your child but also allows them to thrive without the added stress of adjusting to a new school.
This continuity of care has a profound impact on your child’s emotional well-being and development, as they remain in a setting where they feel secure and comfortable. It also facilitates stronger bonds with our dedicated teachers and staff, who have had the opportunity to get to know your child during their time in our infant care program.
This personalization not only benefits your child but also provides peace of mind for you as parents, knowing that your child is in a familiar, trusted, and nurturing environment.
Encouraging Curiosity and Energy
Toddlers are natural explorers with boundless energy and insatiable curiosity. At Primary Beginnings, we embrace these qualities and see them as opportunities for growth and learning. We channel your child’s enthusiasm for exploration into developing essential motor, emotional, and cognitive skills through play-based learning.
Our toddler care classrooms provide a wide array of materials, toys, and opportunities for exploration, enabling your child to ask questions, seek answers, and develop a sense of wonder about the world around them. This curiosity forms the basis of strong problem-solving skills.
We proudly use the Creative Curriculum to guide your child’s learning journey both in our infant and toddler care programs. This award-winning approach is made up of research-based resources and curriculum, to meet the state’s early learning standards and provide a strong foundation for your child’s education.
It is an approach that encourages your toddler to discover their own voice, properly convey emotions, and expand their boundaries in a safe and accepting environment.
At Primary Beginnings, we provide the space your child needs to learn and grow uniquely. We place a strong emphasis on daily routines and self-help skills, preparing your toddler for the next steps in their education.
Fostering Creativity and Problem-Solving
We believe in providing your toddler with a variety of age-appropriate experiences that foster creative thinking and problem-solving. Our goal is to provide toddler care that will develop skills to serve your child well throughout their lives.
Our classrooms are filled with open-ended materials that allow your toddler to explore, experiment, and create. Through activities like building, drawing, and imaginative play, your child can freely express themselves, encouraging creativity and imaginative thinking.
Our teachers serve as facilitators of learning, guiding your child through various experiences and activities. Through age-appropriate challenges and tasks, toddlers develop problem-solving skills as they work through obstacles and find solutions. These guided activities empower your child to think critically and develop logical reasoning. Through these developmental milestones, your child will learn to walk, talk, smile, and eventually converse with their classmates.
Learning to solve problems often involves working with others. Our classrooms promote social interaction and collaborative learning, allowing your child to engage in group activities and discussions. These experiences help build problem-solving skills, as they learn to communicate, share ideas, and find solutions together.
Stay Connected with Procare Connect
We understand that your child’s growth and development are important to you, and we want you to be an active part of their journey. Our Procare Connect app allows you to stay connected every step of the way.
You’ll receive daily reports and regular communication, including electronic updates such as photos and videos. This way, as your child transitions from an infant to a toddler, you can continue to be a part of their developmental milestones and never miss a moment of their progress.
Three Five-Star Locations
Our dedication to delivering top-quality toddler care remains unwavering. All Primary Beginnings preschools proudly hold a five-star rating from the North Carolina Division of Child Development and Early Education (NCDCDEE), signifying a commitment to going well beyond the minimum standards for child care.
This top rating is based on both program standards and staff education. Program standards are assessed by evaluating the quality and cleanliness of play areas, staff-to-child ratios, and interactions with children, while an environmental rating scale is used for five-star preschools, assessing health practices, interaction quality, activity offerings, and overall safety.
Education standards gauge the level of education and experience among staff, including lead teachers holding a North Carolina Early Childhood Credential, the education and experience of administrators and teachers, the number of childcare credentials, and formal education. In essence, our five-star preschools indicate exceptionally well-educated and experienced staff, ensuring superior management, enriching experiences, and enhanced learning opportunities for your children.
