Secure, safe, nurturing and clean environment

Toddler Town utilizes Tadpoles, a web-based childcare and preschool app (iOS and Android) that gives parents real-time notes and reminders, photos and videos of their children at day care, and school notifications and alerts. Tadpoles is designed to give childcare providers a way to keep track of kids' needs -- and parents peace of mind while keeping them informed throughout the day.
We encourage toddlers to practice their self-help skills, make appropriate choices and build their problem solving skills, which improves their self-esteem.
