Conscious Discipline® Guides Social-Emotional Development

The turbulent toddler years can be a difficult time for everyone. Your child seeks independence and pushes boundaries, which sometimes ends in tantrums. Teachers guide your child in self-regulation and decision-making, setting the foundation for their social-emotional development.

Your Child’s Safety Is Always Priority # 1

Rest easy knowing your child is safe and secure at school. Restricted access controls at the main entrance and classrooms, internal-use-only security cameras, fenced outdoor play areas, and CPR-trained teachers add an extra layer of security.

Low Teacher-Student Ratios For Quality Care & Support Services

In the toddler class, 1 teacher to 4 children is the norm – better than the state standards! If your child needs additional developmental or behavioral support, onsite speech and behavior therapists are available every day to see referred children.

HighScope® Curriculum Teaches Active Discovery

Play is your child’s work, and in the toddler class, HighScope® emphasizes active learning and discovery. Hands-on activities stimulate curiosity and teach the basics of scientific inquiry, while open-ended play in structured learning areas lets children direct their own learning.

American Sign Language Supports Emerging Communication Skills

Teachers use American Sign Language (not baby sign language) to promote language acquisition and development. ASL, used in conjunction with speech, helps non-verbal children communicate wants and needs and hastens language acquisition.

Classroom Setup Allows For Active Play & Exploration

Your toddler’s large classroom encourages active discovery! Individual learning centers beckon with blocks, manipulatives, books, and dramatic play, while a dedicated gross motor area includes indoor play structures for climbing and exploring.

Outdoor Play Gives Your Child A Daily Dose Of Nature

Toddlers love exploring their own turfed playground area, away from the big kids, where they can toddle, wobble, and walk their way around just-their-size play structures. They also get introduced to veggie gardens, which they tend as they grow.

Onsite Chef Prepares Healthy Breakfast, Lunch, & 2 Snacks

A chef prepares delicious and healthy daily breakfasts, lunches, and snacks in an onsite commercial kitchen. Meals incorporate food the children help grow in the garden and cater to your child’s food allergies, sensitivities, and dietary needs.

ProCare® Connect For Peace Of Mind

You’ll love the ProCare® Connect app, which puts parent-teacher communication at your fingertips! Message and chat with your child’s teachers, view schedules and progress reports, ask questions, and even see photos and videos from your child’s day.

My son loves going to school every day and he always looks so engaged in the pictures they send us. His teachers are great and I love the Procare app that allows us to get updates throughout the day and communicate in real time with the school. We have also really been enjoying all of the family activities that the school plans!

"Thank you NMELA, for everything!!!"

At NMELA I never felt like my baby was a burden, task, or a number. The love they give to their kids is zero to none. Everyone knows and loves him like family. Breanna and Alyssa even helped him to take a bottle when he first started. They are amazing at communicating and extremely accommodating. The staff are well qualified and know how to treat, teach and care for babies.

We love this school! I love that its smaller than the school my kids were at before, that way each kid gets a little more attention. We love when they send home activities for us to do together at home and my kids love it too!All the teachers are nice and good at communicating with me.
