Creating Community Where Your Child Participates
Older toddlers build confidence and self-motivating skills through the positive and ongoing support of their caregiver. Building their character and confidence creates that strong foundation and cultivates the ability for the children to become more independent. Our teachers look for opportunities for the children to make choices and take ownership. Also, providing ways for the children to talk about and express their feelings in the moment helps the children gain strategies for recognizing, naming, and learning the strategies they need in the future.
Children at this age are starting to gain more awareness and understanding of their bodies. Our teachers work with our older toddlers to strengthen their eye and hand coordination both in their fine motor and gross motor development. Older toddlers also tend to have lots of energy, and they need opportunities to engage in vigorous physical activities. Our teacher plan both indoor and outdoor activities that promote their physical development. The children also have built in free time to allow them the ability to meet the needs that they know their bodies require.
Older toddlers need to have many opportunities to make meaning from print and pictures in order to develop their reading skills. By having signs, labels, books, and activities that include pictures and step-by-step instructions, children start to cultivate the association of print to the world they are familiar with. Our teachers also play games such as “Mother, May I” or “Follow the Leader” to encourage the children to follow more complex directions and demonstrate their abilities to communicate together.
Curiosity and creativity is the main focus of a 2 year old. Using their imagination and creativity builds confidence and comfort in their learning process. Our teachers follow a consistent routine and use reminders to encourage the children to further develop their receptive language skills and their independence. They plan activities that promote sequencing, matching, making connections, coordination, and cause & effect.
Children develop a love for literature by listening to and interacting with stories. This will encourage the children to build their independent speaking and reading skills. Our teachers not only read the stories but engage the children throughout the reading. You will hear them asking for predictions and expanding the story beyond the book. Older toddlers explore early writing skills through drawing, painting, and coloring. Exposing the children to a lot of print encourages them to begin independent writing.
Finding new ways to encourage the children to count and problem solve encourages math concepts. It also teaches the many different ways math skills are used throughout the day. You will find our teachers exploring collections, playing Hide and Seek, solving puzzles, and doing sequencing activities.

As a former childcare provider, I had a lengthy checklist of requirements and expectations when looking for a daycare for my son. The moment I walked in, I knew Magic Memories would meet all those items on my list and so much more. I am so blessed to be able to send my child into a loving and welcoming environment where he is cherished and nurtured by all of the fabulous staff. Thank you Magic Memories for providing my family with so much more than just childcare.

My daughter has been going here for 1 year now and she loves it. The teachers are friendly and I feel she is really growing and learning at Magic Memories !!
- Jasmine Simmons
My kids have been going here for about 6 months and we love it. The staff is friendly and professional. They are always happy to talk with me about my kids if I have any concerns or questions. There is a nice balance between learning from a well-designed curriculum and free play both inside and out -particularly during the school year. There are several great playgrounds for different age groups. They are well staffed, and because of this are able to be very flexible. We attend part time and are able to change our schedule as needed. Overall, we love it!

This has been the 3rd daycare that my son (almost 2) has attended and I can honestly say that I love and appreciate this facility and staff. The director and assistant director are so friendly and accommodating. The teachers really seem to care about the children. I do not have to worry about my son and the care that he receives during the day. I would highly recommend the Creative Care Green Lane facility!

Magic memories is a wonderful learning center. While moving from one city to another and trying to find the right school with before and after care for my two boys, i stumbled across magic memories Royersford. The staff is wonderful and I have built a great teacher-parent relationship with some of the ladies. They all take pride in caring for the children.

Once I walked into Magic Memories I knew it was the right choice for my daughter by its unique and family feel environment. The teachers were patient with my daughter adjusting in the beginning as well as answering all my questions throughout the year not just with emails but personal calls and face to face chats that helped build that secure and comfortable relationship.
