Our Toddler Program is designed to support the onset of academics, creating a bridge between infancy and the older toddler age group for students starting on their educational journey ages 19 months to 29 months.
In the Toddler grade level, students will be introduced to a balanced daily schedule utilizing a mix between fundamental instruction such as, basic letters and numbers and a high level of socialization and artistic expression. Young Toddlers will experience an exciting world of open curiosity expanding in the subject areas of literacy, mathematics, color/shape recognition and use of fine and gross motor skills to begin on the journey of independent eating and eventually, doodling/writing.

By preparing Toddlers for their academic journey ahead with The Brunswick School, students will feel at ease as their schedules move from a highly social and dependent environment to one of routine and independence creating lifelong learners.
