Pretend Play✨

We have the cutest cashiers in town! We’ve been able to learn important things like asking for something we need, where the frozen and refrigerated items go- and understanding why.

Can you find the miss placed items?? 👀 so silly! 🤭☺️

Welcome to class 8 ✨

We opened our new classroom to spend some extra time with our older 3 year olds, who are preparing for the fun adventures in the four year old class! Ms. Ana has been loving on these smarties and they have been enjoying learning communication and navigating through new social + emotional topics/experiences in class 🥰

The Modern Tot Preschool is a screen time free school ✨ We have a dedicated reading center in each of our classrooms that allow young learners to grab books that catch their eye. 📖 ✨ Our teachers devote time everyday to read aloud to the children. Our hope is to instill a passion in all of our students to be lifelong readers + learners 🌱

“Play is the beginning of knowledge.” ✨⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
-George Dorsey⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Our peg wall offers a variety of opportunities for meaningful play. 🌈 For toddlers, grasping a peg and successfully placing it in a small hole is a big accomplishment. This practice helps improves hand eye coordination + fine motor skills. ✨ For our older learners more difficult concepts can be applied such as placing the pegs in a sequence, counting, sorting and making patterns— this helps build a foundation for math.

Cultivating curiosity is so foundational to our approach at the Modern Tot. ✨ 🐚 Natural materials provide many sensory benefits and help provide tactile stimulation. 🍂
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The exposure to a range of natural materials helps with finger awareness and coordination and also sparks fascination with discovering in the great outdoors. 🌈✨

A fresh approach to early learning.

We struggled finding a place we’d trust with our 2-year-old and didn’t believe parents should have to settle for less than amazing child care or put their careers on hold.

So, together with a team of early childhood educators, we founded The Modern Tot, where each child is valued for who they are.

You’ll be proud sending them to play, explore, and learn in a peaceful environment that nurtures your child’s inner wonder.

Is the modern tot currently open? I have tried to call a few times over the past few weeks and I have never been able to reach anyone.
Be one of the first to check out our new place at 10534 Garland Road starting this afternoon. Both bookstore locations will be open starting at 1pm. We are not nearly finished with the new space, still needing to add some more lighting in several spots and a/c in the rear area. But we are at the point that there is less and less at the old place and more and more at the new one. So come on by each today and the past and the future developing simultaneously. One last geographical note would be that the new location is on the east side of Garland Road near the Firestone and The Army Store at Easton. Please do not be confused by our old, old signs still on the pole at our previous Garland Road address. We anticipate that distraction ending shortly as there is finally a new user of that building working on it right now: The Modern Tot.
