Music CD Spotlight: 
It has been proven that children respond to music as early as in the womb. So at Smarter Toddler music is important. We not only play traditional children's music like Raffi and Laurie Berkner, we also play World Music, Jazz, Classical, Reggae and Alternative Music etc. The "Big Noise" compilation is our pick of the month, which was actually a gift to Smarter Toddler from one of our parents. Go Get It!

Artist of The Month:
We are known for our arts program. So every month we focus on the work of a world famous artist. We use examples of the artist's work to teach colors, shapes, basic math and opposites.

 ABOUTUS - The first thing you notice when you step inside Smarter Toddler is how colorful, warm and sunny everything is. The second thing you notice is happy, smiling children. We offer hands on learning, using all senses to maximize the potential within each child.  Parents love the bright, inviting musical spaces with Jazz or World Music playing on the speaker system and how everything is labeled to help encourage the love of reading. Smarter Toddler was developed around the idea that quality childhood care and education should be homelike. From the vintage toys, low height lounge chairs to the homey lamps and tons of original artwork, everything was carefully designed to make children feel like they are at home. The 2 outdoor playgrounds nearby allow the children to do what they like to do best... play! 
Likewise, the experienced staff is dedicated to making your child's time full of love, learning and fun each and every day. They teach and foster respect by allowing children to think for themselves, make decisions, work toward their own solutions to problems, and communicate their ideas. Smarter Toddler teachers encourage toddlers to pour their own juice and preschoolers to become actively engaged in clean-up. We accept children ages 3 months - 5 years.

OURCURRICULUM - Your child is unique! That's why we have developed programs with each and every individual child in mind. Our curriculum and programs have been developed for children from 6 months to 5 years of age. 

Smarter Toddler Nursery & Preschool - Call: (212) 721-4964

Infant (3 months to 12 months)
Infants six to twelve months of age are cared for and nurtured by our professional staff in their own private and personal environment filled with color and stimulation to meet the needs of their development. Caregivers provide support to infants throughout the day with a balanced routine and are alert to babies' cues. The environment is set up to foster infants' physical, sensory, social, emotional and intellectual development. Every baby has its own unique schedule which cannot be dictated by another baby. The sleeping and eating rhythms of individual babies are planned by a team consisting of the caregiver and the child's parents. Eating, sleeping, playing and cuddling are all part of the day. Caregivers stay in tune with the rapidly changing needs of each baby as he or she grows. A daily individual journal is kept on their progress of early development stages, which is a communication vehicle between parents and staff. Planning this schedule together will allow a smooth transition for baby from home to Smarter Toddler.

Waddler (12 months to 18 months)
Waddlers range from twelve to eighteen months of age. This program has been designed to develop a sense of awareness in the area of color, sound, textures and feelings and the curriculum prepares the Waddler towards their first step of independence before entering into the Toddler program. Daily activity reports are provided.

Toddler (18 months to 3 Years)
Our Toddlers enjoy safe and protective surroundings to explore and develop new abilities. Small and large muscle coordination is developed through outside and inside free play with age appropriate toys. Toddlers are learning to explore the sights, sounds and textures of the world. Newly mobile toddlers want to take off in all directions at once. However, they have a need to feel safe and secure in their environment so that they can continue to develop their love of learning. 
Toddlers learn by:
Doing - Toddlers learn best when they are engaged actively in challenging and meaningful activities, such as dressing up in hats and scarves to pretend to be mommy in the dramatic play area or using a paintbrush and paper to create a rainbow in the art area. Smarter Toddler caregivers provide toddlers with lots of opportunities to engage in singing, dancing, reading and jumping.
Observing - Toddlers learn "how the world works" by observing and interacting with objects around them. For instance, boats in a tub of water will stay on top (float), but a toy car falls to the bottom (sinks). Our caregivers provide an environment that allows toddlers to make observations and ask questions about the world around them.
Playing - Toddlers strive for a warm and safe environment in which to play. It is important for them to feel confident and self motivated to explore the world around them. Play is a child's work. The Toddler Curriculum ensures that your toddler's day will be filled with things to explore, items to see, objects to touch and hugs to give and receive. Each day is personalized to provide an environment that will develop your child's confidence and self-control.

Preschoolers (3 - 5 Year Olds)
The three year old will begin to experience the joy of self-expression in the areas of music, science, arts & crafts, movement, story hour, cooking and organized games in our supervised play areas. We also emphasize learning to share with friends and developing self-help skills and respect for others and materials. 
Pretend play - Children acting out real life or imaginary experiences are trying to make sense or feel in control of their world. 
Art - Scrubbing, tearing, cutting, painting, rolling and pounding clay are all art experiences that help children learn how the mind and hands can work together to create. Art assists in gaining control of hand muscles, which is necessary for pre-writing. Art experiences can also prepare children for math and science by using colors, textures, forms and shapes. 
Language - Written and spoken words will help children develop a love for reading that will flourish over a lifetime. When children use their own language to express feelings or thoughts, they begin to feel the power of speech. When they sing, listen to poetry, are read to, and are given time to review books, they experience the joy of the written word.
Music and movement - Music and moving the body informally help provide children with a physical outlet. Soothing music can ease fears and anxiety, whereas dance music can help children develop motor skills, be silly and have fun. Singing helps children integrate new words into their vocabulary and experiment with speech patterns.
Manipulative - The doors to the world of math are opened wide with activities such as stacking blocks, pegboards and stringing beads, because they offer opportunities to classify, sequence, sort and match.
Blocks - Decision making, planning, sharing, cooperating, sense of accomplishment and pre-math skills are just a few of the familiar skills that a child will develop in the block area.
Science - Basic cognitive skills of cause and effect are all gained in this exploratory area.
