Toddlertime is a locally owned and operated preschool in the heart of New Canaan. Toddlertime provides innovative preschool, summer camp, vacation clubs and after school enrichment programs for children 18 months until they enter Kindergarten. The mission of Toddlertime’s educational program is to provide a foundation for success in life. With this goal in mind we have created an educational program that not only prepares children for success in school but also develops key 21st century skills which will serve them throughout life. The philosophy of Toddlertime is to provide exciting, innovative and active learning experiences in a secure and nurturing environment. We begin the day after Labor Day and then follow the New Canaan Public School schedule regarding vacations.
