Our T.O.O. program is aimed towards children between the ages of 6 months and 3 years along with their caregiver.  We incorporate early literacy practices to help caregivers and their children develop literacy skills.  


Reading to your child is the most effective way to help them become proficient readers.


Singing helps children hear different sounds in words and learn syllables.


As children play, they practice putting thoughts into words.


Writing helps children understand printed letters and words have meaning.


Children learn about language by listening and joining in conversation.
