Cubs (12-24 months)
The Cub room presents an excellent first experience to the Children's Corner at Newton-Wellesley Hospital.
- Age: usually 12 to 24 months in September.
- Teachers: three teachers are available during the majority of the day.

- We encourage language development and foster self-help skills.
- We introduce an understanding of social expectations linked to sharing and turn taking.
