Welcome! Toot~a~Lou Family Daycare offers a safe, fun, enriching home environment for each child. Our engaging, play-based program includes daily indoor and outdoor playtime, art projects, stories, movement and music activities. We value child's play as vital means for nurturing cognitive, social, emotional and physical development. Play is the primary vehicle for learning and growth. Learning through play builds coordination, confidence and it is what the child will remember for life. We focuse on problem solving, decision making and self-help, while promoting interpersonal communications. These are key elements which contribute to the child’s development, self esteem and confidence.
We specialize in infant & toddler care and implement the Mother Goose pre-school program.
