At The Tot’s Spot, we believe in a child-centered approach to learning through play and experiential opportunities. We strive to nurture each child and help them develop a sense of independence, foster curiosity, and cultivate a lifelong love of learning.

We offer children the opportunity to learn, play, and grow in a multi-age classroom, in which students learn from their peers as well as those older and younger. This enables us to group students by interests and learning levels rather than strictly by age. Our grouping of children is flexible and ever-changing depending on the activity.

To further enhance student experiences at The Tot’s Spot, our children benefit from working with the same teachers year after year, also known as looping. Looping positively affects academic performance for children; these advantages include: minimal wasted time at the beginning of the school year, increased parental involvement, improved social interaction among classmates, decreased child study team referrals, individualized instruction, and extended learning opportunities during summer vacation. Children also benefit by experiencing less stress, participating in more instructional time, and having an increased sense of stability.

We strive to provide an environment and curriculum which encompasses and nurtures a child’s growth socially, emotionally, creatively, physically, and cognitively.


Students can attend for any combination of days and times for the school year. They request that all students attend a minimum of two days per week.
