The toddler years are a busy time, as children’s minds and bodies develop rapidly. Our toddler program is divided into early (13–18 months), middle (18–25 months), and older toddlers (26–36 months), with separate rooms for each group. Our toddler space is cheerful, with a stimulating design offering a safe environment for toddlers to explore and experiment. Toddler teachers focus on gross and fine motor development, manipulation skills, social and academic development, pre-reading skills, and early foreign-language exposure. Toddlers can attend field trips with an accompanying parent.

What Families say
Testimonials About Darlene's Wee Care 4 Kids
I just wanted to let you know how happy and grateful I am that your school, your students, and your staff made my baby boy feel loved, welcomed, safe, and happy yesterday. All he talked about yesterday was how happy and well behaved he was. My baby boy walked into that facility yesterday and said “Hi!” and walked out yesterday so happy. He told me all about his day and was ready for the next day. The smile on his face, his whole posture was everything to me. I’m so happy I picked this school! I CAN FINALLY SAY MY BABY IS HAPPY, I ACCOMPLISHED A GOAL FOR HIM, AND GRANTED HIS WISHES WITH A NEW SCHOOL that he named “DARLENE’S VIRTUAL LEARNING SCHOOL.” Thank you! Thank you! I can say that I feel good and am not worried about his care while he is with y’all!
It is so important to find a place that you can trust. I have had such a great experience with Darlene. The staff is always helpful. They provide great feedback and communication. They are wonderful and have helped me and my daughter with a smooth transition. She is a happier child, which makes me a happier mommy!
For the past nine years, I’ve gone to work with ease and reassurance knowing that my children are in the best of care at Darlene’s. From the owner, Mrs. Darlene, to all of the teachers and support staff, they exude professionalism, integrity, and warmth while caring for my children. I am a single mother raising two young boys to become responsible men and having that extra support in their lives, enforcing positive behaviors, is truly a blessing. From the cleanliness of the facility to the stellar education and loving staff, I give Darlene’s Wee Care the utmost praise.
