Building language - Through additional sign language skills, your toddler learns to communicate with caregivers and other children, so her individual needs are more easily met
Stories and songs - Exciting stories along with an array of silly and fun songs, help your toddler's imagination continue to grow while learning those important skills needed for the next developmental level
Creativity - Our facilities are designed with imagination in mind. As your toddler develops, she will continue to explore her abilities with music art and drama with the help of our developmentally appropriate learning centers located within each classroom. Our state-of-the-art facilities help to encourage creativity and imagination
Fine and gross motor skills - With your toddler on the move, a busy body is a healthy body! Whether it’s crawling, walking, reaching, or tossing, we help your child learn all about her body, and celebrate her accomplishments both great and small
Social interaction - When children enter into the world of toddlerhood, they become aware of the world around them. We believe that healthy and happy children understand the importance of friendship and harmony with their teachers and peers. Grayson Academy is especially designed to maximize friendly interaction between each child and their teachers, no matter the nationality, religious belief or cultural differences.
