a part time program on our beautifully remodeled,
re-landscaped, and extremely toddler-friendly
Here's what you need to know:
Hours: 8:30 - 1:00 pm
Days: Monday - Friday
Food: Two organic vegetarian meals cooked onsite and provided daily.
Ages: Open for "older toddlers" who will be approximately 18-30 months in August 2021.

Our program is very small, and space will be
initially limited to nine children.
For more information please contact our Program Director, Nora Caruso
The safety and health of your children and our staff
are of the utmost importance to us...
Toddlers can't socially distance, but they thrive outdoors!
The Toddler Care Center was established as a non-profit in 1976 by two working women who were concerned about the lack of quality care for very young children.
The first of its kind in the Western States, the Toddler Care Center
bases its philosophy and methods on the model of the
Resources for Infant Educarers (RIE) program founded by Magda Gerber.
Educators and administrators from as far as New Zealand and Japan
have visited the Toddler Care Center; it is described as a
model program for childcare by professionals in the field.
