All About Kids - Daycare - Leader in Child Education

The quality of child care has a direct impact on children’s ability to build healthy relationships, to learn and otherwise become the best they can be. We have received Tennessee’s Highest Rating for Quality Care – 3 Quality STARS and are always striving to exceed those standards.




Toddler Program (12 to 30 months) - "Discovering Me"

To us, early learning goes well beyond childhood. We believe there’s an opportunity to do more than educate right now; there’s an opportunity to educate children for life. That’s the philosophy behind All About Kids.

Our toddler daycare curriculum is designed to develop and reinforce each toddler’s individual needs. Children participate in sensory-based learning experiences, while receiving positive, nurturing guidance from our qualified All About Kids’ teachers. Teachers assess each child’s developing skills, and then provide activities designed to increase those skills.

At All About Kids, we strongly believe in the formation of trusting bonds between toddlers and their teachers. Small group sizes in our toddler day care program allow teachers to develop a deeper understanding of your child’s personality, likes, dislikes, and developmental needs, creating a true community of care.


 Areas of Development

The Discovering Me toddler curriculum focuses on your toddler’s primary areas of development.


Fine Motor Skills: Toddlers’ fine motor skills, which include finger and hand movements, need to be encouraged in many different ways in order for them to progress. Discovering Me offers a wide variety of activities for your child to develop his fine motor skills, ranging from finger painting, to using a pincer grasp to pick up finger foods, to making and manipulating clay.


Gross Motor Skills: Discovering Me focuses on all gross motor skills, which include but not limited to: batting at objects, kicking, walking, and running. Children will be encouraged to bat at beach balls suspended from the ceiling to increase their jumping skills, as well as improve their hand/eye coordination. You might even see toddlers playing Follow the Leader.


Emotional Skills: Discovering Me assists toddlers with exploring all of their emotions, from joy to frustration. Children begin to gain the skills needed, such as patience, cooperation, and sharing to deal with all of their burgeoning emotions in a calm, supportive manner.


Social Skills: Discovering Me strives to instill pro-social skills, also known as "people skills." We start with the toddlers becoming aware of their classmates and move on to encouraging simple sharing activities. Your child will be encouraged to wave goodbye and take turns stacking blocks. These simple activities are the stepping stones for the later preschool years, when children are developmentally ready to share.


Communication Skills: All About Kids’ caring teachers have a deep understanding of how toddlers communicate. They teach toddlers to put their wants and needs into words. Toddlers are encouraged to sing simple songs, recite nursery rhymes, and expand their vocabularies.


Cognitive Skills: Cognitive skills include thinking, learning, and the accumulation of knowledge. Discovering Me focuses on toddlers’ investigation of their environment. Your toddler will begin to sort toys by shape and color and will be encouraged to identify facial features by reciting fun finger plays.
