MDCS Programs


1. Infant/Toddler (Ages 1-3)

Our Infant/Toddler program that is offered accepts children from 1 to 3 years old. This program focuses on practical life exercises, food preparation, and baking.

Psycho-sensory motor materials aid in developing eye/hand coordination, body equilibrium, and cause/effect relationships. Language is also a big part of the program by introducing new vocabulary. Spoken language is very important as well as the children babble, then start learning how to say new words to the toddlers talking in short sentences.

In addition, art, movement, music, planting seeds, and learning about germination (nature) is part of the daily learning in the classroom.
