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. Tracy

Asst. Teacher, Toddlers

Team Member Since Fall 2015

Ms. Tracy started with us in August and hit the ground running! She is originally from Massachusetts and after marrying her high school sweetheart and becoming a mom, she opened and operated a very successful licensed daycare for nine years! After moving to Texas fifteen years ago, she turned her concentration to motherhood and has been busy raising her 6 children! Three are now adults and three are still school aged. After five sons, she and her husband opted to quit gambling on ever having a daughter of their own and adopted a little girl from Russia 6 years ago. In Tracy’s own words, “I have always loved children and decided to apply for this position after looking over the school website and being impressed with what I saw!” We are so glad that Ms. Tracy did and have already appreciated her positive energy and interaction with the children in the few short weeks she has been a member of the team!
