The Daisy Classroom

Our Daisy classroom cares for our older 1 year olds, about 18 – 24 month olds. This room follows the same meal and nap schedule as our older classrooms. A main focus in the Daisy class is to help each child start to gain independence and begin to learn to follow a schedule. The Daisies also concentrate on the development of verbal and social-emotional skills.
