• Toddler Daycare in Salt Lake City

Toddler Daycare

Our toddler classroom is for kids 12 to 23 months of age. The ratio of toddlers is kept low at a maximum of 8 children in the classroom. This helps our littlest kids with their first classroom transition. With a small class size, the teachers can still give lots and lots of one-on-one care to your child while helping them explore their independence and learn at their own pace.

Our toddler teachers have created a fun classroom experience with a perfect mix of lots of free play and planned lessons/projects specifically for curious 1-year-olds.

There is a dedicated playground for this age group where they get to enjoy outside play in the fresh air. With toddler-sized toys and activities, outside time is always a favorite of the kids.

Table foods are provided daily for meals and snacks, but parents are always welcome to send in special foods or snacks their child enjoys.

Toddlers no longer sleep in our cribs, so we have a dedicated nap-time mat for each child. After a busy morning, these cuties take a good nap to recharge their energy for the second half of their fun day.

features of our toddler room

We know every toddler is unique, so our experienced and caring staff provides individualized attention to each child. We believe in building a solid foundation for your child’s future success, and our toddler class is the perfect place to start. If you’re looking for a safe, nurturing, and stimulating environment for your toddler, look no further than First Steps Childcare & Preschool. 

play areas

At First Steps Childcare & Preschool, we understand that toddlers are full of energy and need plenty of room to explore. 

We also know that toddlers learn best through hands-on experiences. Our curriculum gives them plenty of opportunities to experiment, discover, and create. Whether they’re painting a picture, building a block tower, or singing a song, they will have a blast while learning.

Secure open spaces

Our toddler classroom is designed with secure open spaces (indoors and outdoors) to encourage exploration, movement, and social interaction. Our highly trained staff provides a safe and nurturing environment where toddlers can learn and grow.

Our curriculum is based on the latest research on child development and includes activities that promote cognitive, physical, and social-emotional development. We believe play is an essential part of learning for toddlers and our classrooms are full of fun, age-appropriate toys and activities.

personal touches

Our toddler classroom has personal touches that make it feel like home. Everything in our room is designed to make your child feel comfortable and loved, from the cozy blankets and pillows to the handmade quilts.

Simple, interesting materials

We understand that the toddler years are crucial for your child’s development. Our toddler classroom has simple, interesting materials that are developmentally appropriate for young children. Our experienced and caring teachers provide a warm and nurturing environment where children can feel safe to explore and learn.

child-size furniture

As your toddler starts to explore their independence, our toddler class at First Steps Childcare & Preschool is the perfect place for them to learn and grow. Our child-size furniture and age-appropriate activities help your little ones develop their fine motor skills while providing a safe and stimulating environment for them to explore.

diverse books

Our toddler classroom has diverse books that help teach them about the world around them. The books we have chosen are developmentally appropriate and focus on our toddlers’ interests.

We believe that all children are capable of greatness and deserve to see themselves reflected in the books they read. Our goal is to instill a love of learning in all our students and help them become critical thinkers who can see the world from multiple perspectives.
