Welcome to the Toddler Room

Hi, my name is Caroline and I have been working at Learning Edge since September of 2011. I absolutely love my job and being able to see the kids smiling faces every day! On my free time I like to hang out with friends, go to concerts, spend time outside, and work on photography. I also really enjoy traveling.



Things you will Need for the First Day!

Please make sure you have:

  • Two sets of extra clothes, including socks
  • Supply of diapers, wipes, and cream/ointment
  • Favorite blanket or doll/stuffed animal for naptime
  • Sunscreen, hat, and swimsuit for summer
  • Hats, mittens, snow pants, and boots for winter
  • Paperwork completed - intake form and emergency card (You will need to update intake forms every 3 months and keep up with physicals every 6 months until the age of two)

We supply bibs, and cot sheets so there is no need to bring those things. (But you are more than welcome to bring them from home if you want.)

Please label everything with your child's name!!

Transitioning Times

The schedule for transitioning into and out of the Toddler Room is as follows*:

* If your child attends full time, we do this schedule over one week. If your child attends part time, we do this schedule over two weeks. These times may change depending on how well the transition goes. Some children may not need a full week and others may need more than one week. Times will be adjusted accordingly.

Description of Activities


In the morning we go on the playground and the children:

  • ride bikes and sleds
  • march like ants
  • go up the ladder and down the slide
  • play in the water

In the afternoon, we go for a walk in the bye-bye buggy.

Big Room:

In the big room we practice our large motor skills by doing activities such as:

  • Riding bikes
  • Rolling and flipping on mats
  • Kicking and throwing balls
  • Parachute fun
  • Chasing, running, and hiding
  • Crawling through tunnels and tents
  • Singing songs ("Head and Shoulders", "Ring Around the Rosey")

Group Time:

We try to have all the children do the following activities together:
  • Listen to stories
  • Practice colors and shapes
  • Sing songs and finger plays
  • Play musical instruments and dance
  • Water table activities
  • Feel texture cards


Art is a great time to get messy doing many different crafts including:

  • Painting with fingers, brushes, sponges, feathers, marbles, ice cubes, etc., and using paint, and more
  • Coloring with markers and crayons
  • Gluing many different objects on paper (tissue paper, yarn, leaves, glitter, etc.)
  • Cooking projects (cookies, jell-o, pudding pops, cakes, etc.)

Nap/Quiet Time:

During naptime if the children wake up we will comfort them and give them the opportunity to fall back asleep. If they do not go back to sleep, we give them books, puzzles, and other quiet activities to do while remaining on their cots.
