Toddler Childcare

12 Months to 36 Months

Toddlerhood is as challenging as it is exciting for toddlers and adults. As toddlers become aware of “self” and are able to maneuver physically through their world, they develop independence. Toddlers are curious by nature and are enthusiastic explorers. They are developing their own personality but are interested in the world around them and enjoy interacting with their peers. Children learn best through play. We play in the classroom, in the large-muscle room, on the playground, and more. Book a tour to hear more about how our play-based approach gives each toddler the opportunity to practice the skills that they are learning and continue to develop as they grow.

Young Toddlers

Currently Closed: The Young Toddler classroom provides a safe, nurturing learning space for our children. Our curriculum helps our toddlers develop and grow in independence, fine/gross motor, social, cognitive, and communication skills. We have a schedule that allows structure for planned activities but is flexible to meet all of our toddlers’ needs. Our class loves to sing, dance, read books and Bible stories, play, make art masterpieces, and snuggle all day long!

Older Toddlers

In the Older Toddler classroom, our main focus is social and emotional learning. The way we accomplish this is through play. Our teachers provide a variety of materials and resources to help children learn about the world around them and the best ways to handle it. We help the children learn these skills through books and Bible stories, songs, and role play activities, and we put these skills into practice while they play. We also focus on independence skills during our everyday routine and with other planned activities. Our lesson plans provide lots of space for child-led exploration and sensory experiences.

What Our Families Are Saying

My son had been going to RHECC since he’s been 4 months old and I can honestly say I don’t worry about the care he received while we are at work. Having that peace of mind as a parent is invaluable. Being our first child, we toured at least 6 different daycares in the area and once we saw how the staff interacted with the kids, it was an easy decision to send him to RHECC.

All three of our girls have attended RHECC, and we love it! The school has the curriculum, structure, and consistency of a center, but also the relaxed family feel of an in-home daycare (which we’ve also used in the past). All the teachers know our kids, even if they aren’t the main teacher for their classroom. The teachers are kind, empathetic, and truly care about each child in their classes. It feels like a big family! We also love the emphasis on play-based learning and outside playtime, and appreciate that RHECC makes that a priority.
-Becky D.
Our two-year-old has been going to RHECC since he was a baby and we have been beyond impressed with the quality of the care that he has received. Everyone on staff is so caring and creative. We can tell their hearts are in it and this is more than just a job to them. Sending our child to RHECC is one of the best decisions we have made as parents and we are so grateful our son has all these wonderful people in his life!

River Hills is a center where your children are truly loved and cared for as part of a family. All of the staff members are engaged and compassionate; they nurture your child’s unique strengths during this time of such important development. There are numerous opportunities for families to be involved. There is a wonderful balance of learning, both intellectually and socially, through experience and play. We couldn’t have asked for a better experience.

RHECC is seriously the best center around. When we moved to the area, trying to find a new daycare was very stressful. From the moment I toured I knew that this would be the place that I would feel comfortable leaving my baby. They are absolutely wonderful with him, and he has learned so much through his time there. He loves going there every morning and enjoys seeing all the teachers and his friends. They are wonderful with communication and are always willing to listen to any concerns or questions that I have had, they are also very supportive in each stage (such as when he started solid foods). I feel completely comfortable leaving him there while I am at work, which is the biggest blessing. We are so thankful that we found RHECC! They are truly a blessing to our family!
