Toddler Program

12 months - 3 years

The CP Kids toddler program is for children ages 12 months to 2 years 11 months. Each toddler classroom has 8 children and 2 teachers allowing for small group learning. In natural, authentic ways, we offer toddlers the opportunity to learn and extend their language, cognitive, fine motor, gross motor and social/emotional skills. A topic or theme is selected and then every aspect of learning incorporates the central theme. The theme is selected based on the interests of the children.

Once a week, children will take a sports class led by a Chelsea Piers professional coach. Class themes and curriculum vary throughout the year, and are centered around movement, skill-development and installing a love of sports and physical activity. Additionally, children take daily trips to our indoor Little Athletes Adventure Center, mini soccer field, basketball courts, dance studios and our private outdoor playground.
