  • Early Experiences Matter: Well-Being and Trauma in Babies & Toddlers
  • O for Ollie! Enriching Literacy Skills in an Infant-Toddler Classroom

Our teachers receive yearly, ongoing training, ranging from CPR & First Aid, Child Abuse & Neglect Recognition, and other required trainings to age-specific topics, such as "Biting Hurts."  Ohio University holds an Early Ed Conference every fall, which our teachers enjoy attending, as they are able to network with other teachers and caregivers, share local ideas and discuss topics of concern that are specific to families in Fairfield County.

Toddler Writing Center

Ms. Anika and Ms. Kim implemented a toddler writing center in their classroom last week, allowing the children to write and draw freely.  Artwork is typically done in the kitchen area, but they set up the writing center in the main area of the classroom, allowing for a completely new experience!
