Bright, Spacious, And
Clutter-Free Classrooms

There are different spaces for art, sensory activities, and a little library for browsing through books in our classrooms, as well as an open space for your child, to get their muscles moving with dance and free play.

Fun And Safe Playground
Time Every Day

Our amazing playgrounds boast soft patches of grass for those still finding their coordination, and our yards are safe but undeniably fun with so much to explore and do.

Sanitary Cleanliness Is
Our Top Priority

The toddler room is sanitized throughout the day with your child’s safety in mind. While teachers keep a clean classroom by sanitizing & scrubbing during the day, a cleaning crew comes in the evening so it’s fresh and ready to go in the morning.

Comfort And Safety
In A Home-Away-From-Home

We work with you to understand what your child needs. Bridging the gap between home and school builds trust and loving relationships all around. Your little tot will feel safe and connected when they are in our care.

We Keep You Informed On
Your Child’s Day To Day

At the end of each day, you’ll receive a hand-written daily report from your child’s teacher. Details include what your child ate, diaper changes, nap time and length, and activities your child enjoyed that day.

Teachers Provide Potty
Training Support For You

When your little one shows signs that they are ready to start potty training, our teachers are here to help. We plan with you for a positive and consistent experience, and your child will be out of diapers in no time.

Encouraging Your Child’s Emerging Independence

Your little toddler will often insist on doing things by themselves, so our teachers either step back or provide guidance when needed. Putting on a jacket or pouring a glass of water are big tasks your child will be so proud of accomplishing on their own.

Personalized Lesson Plans Follow Your Child’s Interests

Your toddler is discovering the world around them, what they like, and what they don’t like. Our teachers respond by adjusting their lessons according to your child’s needs and interests.

Encouraging A Life-Long
Love Of Reading

Each of our classrooms features its little library where your child can pick a story off the shelf and browse through it. Having access to many books has been proven to increase the chances of your child pursuing higher education and life success.

Responsive, Respectful Redirection As Intervention

Toddlers are learning self-control and have strong feelings as well as challenging moments that can lead to meltdowns. Our teachers use the gentle art of redirection to help them deal with their big feelings.

Baby Signing And Music
As Daily Enrichments

Baby sign language, music, and dancing are fun and engaging ways to get your little one to self-express. Singing songs and clapping to a beat help with coordination and language development too.

Exciting Learning Experiences With Knowledgeable Visitors

Your little tot will get to participate in small field trips that include walks to the local park or splash pad on sunny days. We also host in-house visitors, like the fire department who comes to talk about fire safety and, of course, show off their shiny red truck!

Our In-House Chef Makes
Tasty Wholesome Meals
For Your Child

Home-cooked, nutritious meals are freshly prepared and served daily. We follow CACFP meal patterns so you can be sure that your child’s breakfast, lunch, and snacks are full of fruit, vegetables, whole grains, and other nutritious foods.

parent reviews

My son attended Children’s Choice from age 1.5 -3. He always enjoyed his time at daycare. All the staff were great I was always in the loop of what was going on. A lot of activities to keep not just the children, but their families engaged. Not to mention, very affordable!

- Patrice Martin

I found this place by pure fate and it has been a blessing to our family ever since. My son has been going here for about two years and it has been a wonderful experience. All the staff are so nice and caring and they have all turned into our family. I never have to worry about my son when he’s in their care. He’s growing into such a happy, smart and caring little man and Children’s Choice Madison plays a big part in that. Thank you!!

- Sabrina Garner

My daughter has been attending Madison location since she was one. She was in the infant room and now the toddler room! She says so many words, repeats words, and interacts with children. Something that doesn’t happen with most toddler age children. The teacher’s are amazing and you can tell they really do love what they are doing. Every day they greet my daughter as well as myself which makes drop offs easier for me. I highly recommend this center!!!
