Tiny Twigs

Tiny Twigs is one of the five infant/toddler classrooms here at Hort Woods. We are a mixed age grouping of 6 weeks through 3 years. Our classroom consists of four teachers and one supervising teacher. Tiny Twigs believes that the first three years are very important, formative years of a child’s development. We promote a safe, respectful classroom that focuses on the social-emotional development of children along with the other skills they need to succeed in life. We are very fortunate to be able to be part of your child’s first three years.
