About Dublin Learning Academy Toddler Care

Lil’ Dreamers are new to being on the move and are all about exploring the world around them.

Dublin Learning Academy’s toddler care program leads your Lil’ Dreamer through age-appropriate lesson plans designed around their needs and interests, Our experienced and passionate teachers assist your young toddler as they meet developmental milestones in a fun and educational way.

Students experience many transformations during these important months.  The Lil’ Dreamers Program teaches toddlers to follow a schedule for eating and napping, as well as begin group play. Teachers will encourage your toddler to use their words to express needs and wants. Our Lil’ Dreamers also learn sign language for their most common needs and are introduced to counting objects, differentiating colors and shapes, and uppercase letters.
