Tots’ Academy currently has 3 full day programs and also 2 classrooms for our after school “Friends” program. Our full day program offers a Theme-Based curriculum at present time with the hopes of changing to an Emergent Curriculum in the near future.
Our Program is “Play-based”. The classrooms have become more natural, bringing the outside inside for the children to learn, explore & expand their imaginations.
