Toddlerhood is a wild ride! From the ages of 1 to 3 years old, they are learning so much and so quickly! At 1, they are learning to walk, moving towards more solid foods, and expanding their vocabulary. Around 2 years old, they are walking, running, jumping, climbing, bursting at the seams with a new found sense of independence and curiosity! By 3, they are learning to share, are more interested in socializing rather than parallel play, they are beginning to be able to follow directions, and are experiencing all of those big emotions for the first time! We have compiled some of our favorite resources to help through the many changes coming your way from transitioning to solids to potty training!

Check out our Activities page for local and regional events and spaces to enjoy with your child!
