School Notes

  • Tots-N-Us is a licensed nursery school & daycare center. The most important goal of our early childhood curriculum is to help children become enthusiastic learners. This means encouraging children to be active and creative explorers who are not afraid to try out their ideas and to think on their own. Our goal is to help children become independent, self-confident, inquisitive learners. We're teaching them how to learn, not just in preschool, but all through their lives. We're allowing them to learn at their own pace and in the ways that are best for them. We're giving them good habits and attitudes, particularly a positive sense of themselves, which will make a difference throughout their lives.

Tots N Us is a remarkable school for children. When you walk in the doors you feel a real sense of belonging and "family". The teachers are very loving and supportive of the children as well as the parents. Tonya (the owner) is very approachable and interested in each child's progress. I am impressed at the wonderful arts and crafts my daughter brings home on a regular basis. There is cooking every week, singing and exercise, and weather permitting, daily outdoor play in a beautiful gated playground. In comparison to friends who's children attend other local Preschool programs, Tot's provides a high level of learning in a comfortable and loving atmosphere. My daughter never comes home bored...she is always beaming from ear to ear and eager to tell me about the things she has done each day. I always Joke that I would love if my daughter's teacher could be her teacher through her college years...but truthfully, that would be the nicest thing that could happen for her. I am so happy we chose Tots and have never second guessed our decision. The Tots experience is, in my opinion, the best experience you can offer your child.
