“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.
