Tooney Town Early Learning Center understands that parents need a program that fits their personal needs. It is for this reason that we offer various full day and half day programs for children ages 6 weeks to 5 years of age. With the many enrollment options, it is our goal to meet each family’s needs. Each program includes a unique attendance schedule that is requested by the parent. Parents may choose from 2, 3 and 5 full days as well as 5 half day schedules at our Owings Mills location. The parent chooses the days that are needed in the part-time programs. In order to properly plan for meal times and activities, we ask that the parent maintain the schedule that is chosen until a full schedule change is needed. Due to the ratios mandated by the Maryland State Department of Education's Office of Child Care, we may not be able to offer care on the days that the child is not scheduled to attend.
6 Weeks to 18 Months
Our Infant program is individualized to meet the needs of each child. Our warm, clean and affectionate environment helps to establish each child’s sense of security and promotes each child’s healthy growth.
18 Months to 2 Years
Our Toddler program includes nurturing a sense of self and independence. Children will be helped to verbally describe their own feelings to be better understood and to better understand others. Self-help skills and healthy hygiene will be encouraged at all times
2 Years to 3 Years
Continued development of self-esteem and self-independence will be fostered in our Twoddler program. Our two year olds are engaged in various age appropriate activities. The teachers embrace the uniqueness of each child while fostering independence. Potty training is a big focus, along with assisting the children in utilizing eating utensils. We maintain a state ratio of 1:6.
3 Years to 5 Years
Our Preschool program invites cooperative learning. Children will begin a journey of self-discipline, decision-making, and positive conflict resolution. Also, they will have the opportunity to be introduced to the world of computers.
5 Years to 12 Years
Our School-Age program provides before/after school care which includes breakfast, afternoon snack and transportation to and from some area elementary schools. The children receive homework time and participate in various age appropriate activities including arts & crafts, computers, science activities, public speaking and culinary arts. We also offer care on days that Public School are closed.
During the summer, we offer our Summer Fun Program which is a field trip based program that offers age appropriate activities and meals in an air-conditioned setting along with various field trips.
