Toddler Childcare

  • You are your child's best teacher & we are here to support you!

    We are here to provide a quality, developmentally appropriate experience for your child by creating daily routines and meaningful experiences that revolve around the children's strengths, interests and needs.  We view ourselves as an extension of your family and are here to support you and your family during these early years.  We are committed to having a constant atmosphere of love, learning and security in order to help create a strong foundation for your child's needs and lifelong learning.

    We believe babies are born to learn!  Children form their basis for learning during the first years of life.  It’s a known fact that early childhood experiences have an enduring impact on future learning and well-being.   During our daily routines and activities, we implement The HighScope approach and guiding principles to enrich your child's developmental skills and experiences.

Toddler Childcare

  • Welcome to our Toddler Tadpole Room!
    Room C64 - Phone: 734-439-5118
    Lead Teacher: Denene Yarger, yargerd@milanareaschools.org

    Our infant program is structured around the individual needs of each child, based on the schedule provided by the parent/guardian and designated to enrich your child's developmental skills.  Infants are fed on demand.

    Outside Time: Weather permitting, we take the infants and young toddlers on a walk outside at least once per day.  When the weather does not permit us to go outside, we stay inside the building and walk or play in the multi-purpose room or First Steps.

    Shoe Free Room - With infants always on the floor, we want to provide a clean, safe and healthy environment in the infant room.  We practice a “shoe free” room.  We ask that all adults and children entering the room remove their shoes.  We do this to prevent outside contaminants from being brought into the room.

Mrs. Denene Yarger, Toddler Lead Teacher

Hello, my name is Denene Yarger and I am the lead teacher for the infant and toddler room.

I have my associates degree in Early Childhood Development and over 27 years of experience with all ages.

I have been with PECC for well over a decade, and infant and toddler age is my favorite! Their eyes light up when they try something new and they get so proud of themselves as they figure out their independence.

My husband and I have been married for over 26 years, and my oldest Kelsey is attending Central Michigan and my son is attending Michigan Technological University.

I am looking forward to a fun year getting to know each of you and your children.

Hi, my name is Megan Boomus and this is my second year working at Milan Area Schools. I absolutely love the infant and toddler age as they are exploring and learning new things every day. I will be spending time in both rooms this year so I will get to know all of the littles!

I like doing art and puzzles in my free time! I also love spending time with my family. I can’t wait for a great year!
