We have three toddler rooms at New Day. The Terrific Twos! There are two teachers in each toddler room and there can be up to 10 children in each class. Each class has a daily schedule that includes table activities, (puzzles, playdough, shaving cream) sensory play, stories, songs and an opportunity to do a creative art activity. Outdoor play is part of our program and it is built into the children's daily schedule.
Cassie Smith, Head Teacher
I am the lead teacher in one of our Toddler Rooms. I have an Associates Degree from Jefferson Community College. I enjoy spending time with my beautiful family. My Husband and I have been married for three years and we have a beautiful daughter, Emmalynn. In our spare time we enjoy camping and spending time on the water. I have been with New Day for almost five years. I feel blessed to have had the opportunity to work with young children over these years! There is no better feeling than walking into a class of eight smiling toddlers, happy to see you!
