“Our toddlers are loved and nurtured giving them encouragement to learn, grow and discover, in their own unique way.”
Poko Loko offers full and part-time toddler care starting at 15 months of age. Ratios are kept low, one caregiver per five toddlers. All meals are provided including breakfast, lunch, and
two nutritious snacks. Parents are responsible for providing diapers and wipes of their choice. Our Toddler Program is structured to help your child learn socially and cognitively. Theme based stories, singing, creative art, letters, numbers, colors, and shapes are all daily parts of our program. This program helps our toddlers adapt to scheduling, preparing them for our preschool programs that start at age two.
Morning Arrival—Child’s Choice—Breakfast (6:30 a.m.– 9:00 a.m.)
As parents drop off their little ones, a warm welcome awaits. Toddlers are now free to explore, interact, and express as their curiosity guides them. A hot and nutritious breakfast prepared by our chef will be served at 8:00 a.m., and if the weather permits, the outdoor playground is a must.
Structured Learning (9:00 a.m. – 11:30 a.m.)
In an effort to prepare our toddlers for their preschool years, we try to break up their morning routine into small scheduled increments. Circle time, art time, and story time are integral parts of their schedule as well as singing, letters, counting, colors, and shapes. During this time a healthy snack is offered and outdoor playtime is allotted.
Lunch—Nap—Coloring (11:30 a.m. – 2:30 p.m.)
As noon approaches, our little ones grow hungry and tired. Our in house chef is sure to prepare a meal both balanced and nutritious. After filling their bellies, it’s time to rest. Each child will be able to nap for 2-3 hours every day on his own cot.
Child’s Choice—Parent Pick Up (2:30 p.m. – 6:00 p.m.)
Every afternoon is free classroom play and a chance to socialize with other toddlers. Also, another healthy snack is offered and more outdoor playtime is available until your little one is
