Waddler Room – Walking up to 18 months

A Leap In Learning was the very first center in the area to develop this unique program for our older infants. This room allows for a smooth transition from infant to toddler by creating a “pit stop” along the way. Vocabulary will be built through picture books. nursery rhymes, simple songs, and organized activities. Self-help skills will be encouraged as your child is introduced to serving utensils and sippy cups. Your child will also experience napping on a tiny cot as relaxing music is played while they are lulled to sleep.
