That's why we have developed programs with each and every individual child in mind. Teachers have developed interesting and motivating lessons to engage the children and captivate their interest.

Learning is an interactive process between the teachers and the children. In addition, Smarter Toddler provides extensive staff development opportunities, with goals determined by the teachers themselves.

Parent Testimonials:

Image of Early Learning / Child Care Center in Manhattan, NYC"We fell in love with Smarter Toddler the minute we walked in the door. Everything from the decor to the staff is welcoming, friendly and fun. Our son's teachers, and the other teachers he interacts with, have become like family to us. He looks forward to going to "school" every day."
—Jen Falek

"We love Smarter Toddler because it's an inviting, educational, safe, and comfortable place and it offers a fun, accessible education for our son. The best part though is how much our son loves it. He adores his teachers, his friends, and has a blast on field trips, neighborhood walks, and with Music Together. Our experience has been better than we could have even hoped for."
—Julie & Patrick Large, Parents of Henry

"Smarter Toddler is an innovative and creative program. Sofia loves her teachers and has learned lots of new skills. We have experienced administration as being very responsive to the needs of children and families. As parents we feel grateful our child has a safe and caring environment to grow and learn."
