Our Preschool and Pre-Kindergarten classes are led by our staff teacher. Our small class size have a maximum of 5 students. Each child is taught in a group setting, as well as, individually. No child is left behind as the curriculum is customized to your child's very own needs.

We offer a customized curriculum focused on letter/number recognition, writing, math, sequencing, spacial awareness, rhyming, etc...all taught by our staff teacher.

Quality of Teaching

Individualized Teaching: From the Director

Each child is taught at their own level. We do not teach to the average child in the class because, by doing so, the children who are behind or excelling will not get what they need to move to the next level. We have "checks and balances" in place to ensure that NO child is left behind.

Day in the Life

General School Mission

Toddler University Preschool and Infant Care is dedicated to providing a warm and inviting home setting that allows children to develop their creativity, self-esteem and independence with the loving guidance of a professionally trained provider. We offer the perfect blend of a warm home and the structure of a traditional preschool. Here, we focus on promoting a positive self-image for our children. We foster that image along with their developmental growth (in areas of intellectual, social, physical and emotional skills) through a variety of individual and group activities. Another thing that makes TU unique is that we have our preschool teacher on staff whom comes with over 30 years of experience.

Home-School Connection

Home-School Connection: From the Director

As director, I have an open door policy with all parents and students. My goal is that every child leaving Toddler University will EXCEL in Kindergarten and beyond. I am available for parent-teacher meetings, I send out a monthly newsletter, I also have parents evaluate Toddler University as we are always a work in progress and are ever evolving. We have annual promotion and graduation ceremonies and several other programs through out the year.


Separation is Handled through:

  • Pre-entry meetings with parents at school

Handling Separation: From the Director

We nurture children with separation anxiety. We give them extra attention to help their transition. We also work with the parents as each child has different needs.
