Our Mission

We believe it is our responsibility to positively impact children's futures.

Why choose Us?

At Toledo Day Nursery, children develop positive relationships and and enjoy learning experiences that encourage them to think. Our classrooms are safe, beautiful spaces staffed by highly qualified teachers who recognize children’s unique needs.

We encourage the development of each child’s belief in his or her self. Children are taught to trust and to demonstrate tolerance and compassion for others. As fellow students, they learn how to problem solve, collaborate, create and communicate. These skills will provide the tools needed for their next classroom and for the most important classroom of all – their life.
