INFANTS & TODDLERS

Joy’s goal of the Infant and Toddler programs are to provide a safe, loving environment in which the child can attach to and bond with the teacher. From the safety of this relationship, the child can then confidently begin to explore his/her abilities. Each classroom is filled with materials to stimulate all the child's senses; vision, hearing, touch, taste, and smell.
