18 – 30 Months

Excellent toddler care and facilities.
New learning adventures every day.

We make sure older toddlers have plenty of toddler-friendly activities and great vacations, too. The Tyler Place Family Resort’s experienced caregivers and counselors keep older “Senior Toddlers” busy and happy with a whole range of hands-on, feet-on activities. Within our range of indoor and outdoor play opportunities, your toddler might find themselves searching for frogs and worms, watering the radishes in the Children’s Organic Garden, watching puppet shows, acting in dress up “dramatics”, enjoying tumble-time in the Field House, or simply listening to a good story.

Toddlers’ Morning Program with Evening Parents’ Helper or Program*

This Senior Toddler morning program has a ratio of one counselor/caregiver for every 2 to 3 children. Senior Toddlers “log roll” in the grass, play hide and seek behind rocks and trees; search for wildflowers and worms; paint; tumble; and enjoy rhyming games and water play. Their play center and playground are stocked with developmental toys, books, games, climbing and outdoor play equipment. During the evenings, your child has his or her own Parents’ Helper, with whom they can have an early supper along with other Senior Toddlers. Afterwards, they can enjoy after-dinner group play, or return to your accommodation for play/early bedtime. Meanwhile, the two of you can enjoy a relaxed cocktail hour and candlelight dinner at the Inn.

If your summer family vacation falls during these dates, we make arrangements for you to have your own Parents’ Helper who’ll provide your child with one-on-one loving care and companionship mornings and evenings during your family vacation with us. Toddler activities are set up and organized for your Parents’ Helper to do with your child. The Playroom (located in the Playhouse) has both open and alcove play areas, in addition to a fenced-in playground next to the Children’s Organic Garden. The Playroom is extensively equipped with developmental toys, soft climbing equipment, books, games, sand and water activities, as well as a serving kitchen, dining area, rocking chairs for nursing mothers, and a changing area.
