Three large, bright classrooms host our Teal Turtles, Purple Pandas, and Black Penguins classes, giving inquisitive 2-year-old toddlers plenty of space to accommodate their active style of learning and social interaction. Teachers in these classrooms provide students support in learning social and self-help skills including using please and thank you, cleaning up, and putting on coats and shoes.
Teal Turtles - Younger Twos (24 months-28 months)
Purple Pandas - Twos (26-32 months)
Students are given time for free play and exploration in various activity centers including dramatic play, building, and fine motor, and also enjoy small group activities and teacher-guided learning. Our older toddler classrooms are equipped with in-class bathrooms, introducing that next big step of potty training.
During snow or inclement weather conditions, our hours of operation will be updated via email, website, Procare,
and Facebook. We will always strive to be an open. However, adverse weather may affect how many staff we have on site and how many children we can provide care for. MELC will close if staff members are not able to make it in to work safely.
Please call the center to see if the program is open if you are not sure.
