Toddler Time

What is Toddler Time? 

Toddler Time is a group for toddlers and their caregivers and is part of Early Support at the EEU. The EEU’s Early Support program is for children under age 3 and their families. Children and caregivers who attend Toddler Time will have opportunities to engage in a variety of toddler-friendly activities and spend time with others. For more information, please see our Toddler Time Welcome Letter

If you have concerns about your child’s development, please complete the Early Support Referral for Evaluation form linked below. Toddler Time is not a primary service location for Early Support Services.
