Learning Spaces

Tot Spot has several distinct play/learning areas for children to experience each day. Each provides different activities designed to develop a wide variety of skills. We provide a theme-based program and our toys are rotated monthly. Each day includes a visit to the craft room, activity room, play room, gym, story room and snack time.

Craft Room

Each day the children will create an individual project and have the opportunity to choose the sand table, lego table, play dough table, listening centre and/or special theme activities.
