Toddler II

M-F 6:30 AM to 6:00 PM
Ages 2yr-3yrs

Welcome to Mt. Elizabeth Academy’s enriching Toddler II program – a structured and stimulating environment designed to cultivate independence and academic awareness in your older toddlers. As a distinguished Kennesaw daycare center committed to affordable Christian childcare, we take pride in being recognized as the best daycare in Kennesaw, providing a foundation rooted in Christian early childhood education and Kennesaw toddler care.

In our Toddler II Classroom, older toddlers thrive in a more structured routine, fostering an understanding of their day, predictability, and a sense of security. Circle time activities, including calendar exploration, weather discussions, counting exercises, storytime, and songs, engage toddlers in age-appropriate learning that promotes cooperation, sharing, and expressing emotions appropriately.

 All Toddler II’s also engage in Spanish lessons and songs. In every classroom, our approach is customized for each individual child across four key areas:

Toddler II Highlights

Continuing our commitment to subjects such as colors, letters, numbers, shapes, and vocabulary, our learning approach combines child-directed and teacher-initiated opportunities. Spanish lessons and songs add a multicultural dimension, enhancing language skills and cultural awareness.

Our approach is tailored to each Toddler II across four key areas: Appreciation, Independence, Cooperation, and Respect. From diaper changes and/or potty training to feedings, rest time, and playtime, our loving interactions with toddlers prioritize their happiness and comfort in a safe and secure environment.

Highlights of the Toddler II program include graduates leaving with a strong sense of independence and academic awareness, preparing them for the next step in their educational journey. Potty training is emphasized as a crucial preschool preparation, with a focus on following two and three-step directions and continued vocabulary learning. Oral language development is a key milestone as toddlers begin communicating through sentences and questions.

Circle Time sessions provide a platform for toddlers to interact, socialize, and learn from one another. From songs to finger plays, art to sensory building activities, our toddlers are consistently engaged in meaningful lessons and play with their peers.

Our nurturing and committed teachers create a safe and loving environment, emphasizing thematic focus in the curriculum to provide toddlers with multiple opportunities to explore, absorb information, develop their five senses, and grow both physically and mentally.

Parents stay connected throughout the day via our secure Brightwheel App, receiving pictures, videos, and messages from teachers, ensuring they witness their toddler’s moments in a loving, caring, and supportive environment.

As part of our commitment to your child’s well-being, two healthy and nutritious meals, along with two snacks, are included in the cost of tuition. Our monthly menu, available online and provided at the beginning of the month, ensures transparency and allows toddlers to enjoy breakfast, lunch, and snacks with their class in a toddler-friendly manner. Whole milk and water complement the mealtime experience.
