Our Butterflies classroom is designed for toddlers 18 months to 2 years by August 31.

The student to teacher ratio does not exceed 10 children to 2 teachers.

For most children, this is the first time they will be in community care. At this age their language is emergent, they develop large and fine motor skills, and begin socializing with others outside of their family unit.

Based on each child’s level of development they manipulate puzzles and experiment with art and science. Teachers read and sing to enhance language development. They also encourage independence at each child’s own pace. Most of all each child has a chance for imaginative play and to explore the many interactive toys in the classroom.

Toddler teachers serve their students with amazing patience and love while maintaining a safe environment. Our teachers’ love and passion for young children help them to value each child’s unique gifts and talents.

Ms. Suzanne

Lead Teacher, Toddlers

Team Member Since August 2003

Ms. Suzanne has been a part of our program since her children attended many years ago. Ms. Suzanne brings enthusiasm, laughter, and energy to the toddler classroom. She is an amazing teacher with a level of patience that makes her a favorite! When she is not enjoying toddlers, you can find Ms. Suzanne needlepointing or enjoying the antics of her precious cats! Ms. Suzanne is married with a grown son and college aged daughter.

Ms. Bonny

Asst. Teacher (M&W), Toddlers

Team Member Since August 2016

Ms. Bonny joined our staff in the summer of 2016! She was born in Amarillo, but spent most of her early years in Wichita Falls. She has about 15 years experience in childcare and enjoys the youngest of God’s creation and all of the developmental changes that happen each school year. Bonny is the proud mom of a college aged son named Jacob who she describes as “awesome.” If money and time were not a factor, she would enjoy a day spent outside and maybe the opportunity to try something new like scuba diving off some fabulous beach somewhere!

Ms. Sharon

Asst. Teacher (T&TH), Toddlers

Team Member Since Fall 2022

Ms. Sharon is our local Louisiana native and loves all things Cajun! After earning a Bachelor of Arts degree in Theater and Communications from the University of New Orleans, Ms. Sharon went on to earn both her teaching and master’s degrees from San Francisco State University. After teaching in the San Francisco Unified School District for 10 years, Ms. Sharon made her way to Texas where she has served as both a preschool teacher and elementary school substitute for the last 22 years. Her personal philosophy is to approach each child with respect, teach them with consideration and never lose sight of the fact that early childhood is the most formative time in a person’s life. The CDO is blessed to have Ms. Sharon on our teaching team!
