Toddler Classes


Program Description 

Our toddler Nido classes will follow a gradual separation model. During the Fall, children will attend class with a parent or caregiver, with the guidance of our lead teacher Megan Taylor-Wolfe* and her team. In January, the children will begin the separation process, and parents/caregivers will be invited to join Dr. Jennifer Vest* for conversation and connection in the nearby Ware Room for part of this time. Once completing the separation process, children will attend class independently with the support of the Nido teachers. The Toddler class will include time for choice play, gross motor exploration, stories and songs, and a snack---a morning filled with the joy of growth and learning for which the All Souls preschool program is known.
