Preschool years are a time of learning and growing. It is important time for learning through hands on experiences. Children have an opportunity to explore their world, expand their natural creativity in an environment that is safe and stimulating. Kangaroo Kids provides exciting opportunities for individual explorations as well as meaningful small group interactions. All instruction is individualized to meet the needs of every child.

At this age, children are growing more inquisitive and are learning to explore the sights, sounds, smells and textures of the world around them. They learn through play, experimentation and observation, at their own pace. Waddlers and Toddlers learn best when they feel secure in a warm, loving environment. The relationships they establish with the friendly, caring teachers at Kangaroo Kids help give them the confidence to experiment and the security to meet their new challenges. The curriculum at Kangaroo Kids provides the stimulation Waddlers and Toddlers need and lots of opportunities for exploration in a safe environment.
