Talented Tots daycare curriculum encompasses the four main subject areas of language arts, mathematics, science and social science. These subject areas are taught through thematic units. We also have a different “exploratory class” each day of the week which includes; Spanish, music, gymnastics, computers and art. We design our curriculum to allow children to have a smooth transition into kindergarten.
“We loved our time with Talented Tots. It has been such a nice balance between care and schooling at a pace that grew with our children. Not only were they well prepared for elementary school, they also learned how to interact with children and adults in a kind and courteous way.”
“Our family has been with Talented Tots for almost 6 years. Leaving your child with anyone other than family can be nerve-racking, but from day one I knew my babies were in good hands. For us location was definitely important, but having daycare and preschool all rolled into one is a huge plus! Both my daughter and son have been with Talented Tots since they were three months old, and to see them develop and unfold before my eyes is far more than AMAZING!!! My daughter was fully prepared for her transition into kindergarten and loves visiting her former teachers. She even asks to spend the day there with her brother when her school isn’t in session. The staff is always friendly and helpful. They have taken the time to get to know me and my children, and I can’t say enough good things about the wonderful Directors and Owners!!!!”
“My family and I love Talented Tots! We started here two years ago with our child. The teachers are incredible. My daughter has made a complete turn-around since starting here. I love hearing about her day and what she is learning. I often hear from others how their older children haven’t learned yet what my four-year-old has. Our youngest child is getting ready to celebrate the BIG 1 here with her Talented Tots friends, and I could not be happier with the friendships she’s made already and the bond with her teachers. The crafts are an exciting end to our day as well. Hands-down the best center in town.”
“Talented Tots has provided a safe, fun, loving and energetic environment for my children. I always enjoy hearing about my children’s day and what they’ve learned! The teachers and staff are always providing the best quality of care and make learning fun. They work hard to come up with new projects that allow our children to be creative and explore. The classes are small and structured to meet the needs of different ages which makes the learning aspect age-level appropriate. The facility is always clean and the halls are always decorated with the children’s artwork making it inviting. The exploratory classes are an added bonus that introduce the children to Spanish, gymnastics, music and more. I always know the days my son has music because he comes home singing! Talented Tots is more than just childcare, they are family!”
“We love Talented Tots! I found Talented Tots three years ago and it was hands down the best decision I made for not only my children, but myself as well! They are not only amazing at caring for my children, but they provide the children so many opportunities. At age two, Talented Tots begin exposing children to gymnastics, music and Spanish. Our children have grown so much since they started with Talented Tots. What I love most of all are the bonds they have with their teachers!”
“I can hardly believe that is was almost three years ago that I dropped my daughter off at Talented Tots so that I could go back to work. It was a difficult and scary decision as a first-time Mom. I wanted to make sure she was in a place that would be safe, educational, and where I felt comfortable leaving her if I wasn’t able to be with her all day. I can easily say that I found that and more in Talented Tots. My daughter gets to spend the day being cared for by people that I feel truly care about her. The teachers and staff do a great job working with the her, and are not only looking after her while I am at work, but teaching her many things as well. I love picking her up and seeing the crafts she has made, hearing her sing a new song she learned, and discovering what new things she is working on that week. The teachers are so great there and I can’t say enough about them. She has really bonded with so many of them. She also really enjoys interacting with all the kids in her class and has made many friends and learned valuable social interaction skills. I am so thankful to each and every person at Talented Tots for taking such good care of my precious girl.”
“Both of my girls started at Talented Tots at 3 months old and every mom knows just how hard that first day of childcare is. Each time, the teachers calmed my worries and made me feel confident that the girls would be in good hands. As the months and years have passed, I can see how much they have flourished and how much they are loved. The teachers really have become an extension of our family.”
“My Family has been with Talented Tots going on 3 years now. The staff has become so close to us, we consider them family. They treat our children as if they were their own. They make our kids feel comfortable in a fun, loving, educational environment. Any time there was any problem at all, it was taken care of with a great sense of urgency. Leaving my children in the care of Talented Tots puts my mind at ease because I know they will be taken care of. I’m beyond happy that our family chose Talented Tots to be our child care providers.”
“My son has been with Talented Tots for a little over 5 months. I chose Talented Tots because they had a clean, friendly environment. I was attracted to the knowledge of the staff and patience they had with my son transitioning into a classroom setting. Also, the different curricular activities they offer in the classrooms were a huge bonus!”
“I have sent my 2 children to Talented Tots- Kearney since they were 8 weeks old- 2.5 years. The teachers have treated my children as their own. My son (2.5 years old) comes home every day learning something new, from Spanish to gymnastics. My daughter (10 months) is meeting and exceeding her milestones thanks to the wonderful care and attention she receives. The theme of the week is communicated to parents so that we may continue their education at home along with a daily report of activities of the day. I am thrilled with the care they receive and would recommend them to anyone seeking child care.”
“Our family has attended Talented Tots since 2014 when our daughter was an infant. Now with a little brother in tow, we continue to be impressed with the care our children receive at Talented Tots. They are offered a range of educational opportunities from library visits and Spanish, to dance, music, and a variety of multi-sensory activities, our kids are always busy exploring and finding ways to be creative. Staff are receptive parent requests and feedback, and children are truly cared for in a way that lets their imagination grow. We love Talented Tots!”
“I just wanted to say how much I appreciate all of the teachers. They always go above and beyond for the kids. I have to give a huge shout out to Miss Shayla who absolutely adores Willa. She is so sweet and kind hearted. Willa has grown so close to her and loves her dearly. Thank you so much to the teachers for making this nervous mom feel better about being a working parent.”
“Our daughter says coming back to Talented Tots was like “going back home”. We are so thankful for the caring teachers here - You all don’t just watch and teach our children - you also love them and that’s what sets you apart from the rest!”
“Finding the right daycare is an extremely difficult and scary task. We have been with Talented Tots for the last 3 ½ years and I honestly would not go anywhere else. This daycare is absolutely amazing! My number one quality when looking into a daycare was finding a safe and loving environment and I found this at Talented Tots. When you walk into the daycare you can feel and see that the kids are happy and having fun! Talented Tots has provided a rich learning environment that allows students to grow at their own pace. The curriculum and content that is being utilized is hands-on and my kids really love it! The teachers are knowledgeable of learning standards that need to be implemented within their classrooms and are extremely creative in making learning fun! From learning their ABC’s to Spanish Class, the kids are engaged. My husband and I are so thankful for the teachers that have worked with our 3 children and the bonds that they have created with our family.”
“We joined the Talented Tots Parkville family 6 years ago. Talented Tots is so much more than just a "daycare". Staff members are very friendly, Teachers are amazing and really get to know the kids on a personal level, and parents are always kept informed. There are tons of opportunities provided for the kids between Music class, Gymnastics, Library, Spanish, Vision Screenings, school pictures twice a year, Water Wednesdays in the Summer, the list really just goes on and on. My Daughter began at Talented Tots when she was 12 weeks old and is now 6 and in Kindergarten. I believe that she was well prepared for Kindergarten because of the learning she received in her Pre-K class. Teachers go above and beyond to prepare students academically and socially for starting school and for us, that was very helpful. My son is currently in the Superstars class and I continue to be impressed at the things he is able to do thanks to Teachers keeping kids actively engaged in learning. Choice in Daycare is stressful for parents. I am so thankful for the ability to communicate with my child's Teacher throughout the day when I need. Teachers post lots of picture to keep parents included and are very responsive to messages. We truly love Talented Tots and I would highly recommend them to anyone!”
"We have been at Talented Tots for one year. When we started one year ago, we pleasantly were surprised on how easy the transition to full-time day care was for my 2 kids. They both come home everyday happy and tired with lots of stories of things they did that day. We have had a baby 5 months ago and love the care he gets in the Wee Ones room. He always seems happy and content when I pick him up. I love all the crafts the kids bring home, even the baby!"
“We have been sending our daughter to Talented Tots since she was 3 months old. She is now 10 months old and we just love our daycare family!! It was hard going back to work and leaving our newborn with someone new but they helped us through that transition stage and couldn’t have done it without them! She really enjoys going there everyday and seeing Heather and Taylor!! They are amazing !!! Thank you for all you do for our family!!!”
“Having our first child, everything is so new and unexpected! Finding a daycare to fit our busy lifestyle seemed like an impossible task until we toured Talented Tots in Parkville, MO. From the moment we tried to get inside (keypad on the door to ensure safety), we knew our child would feel just as secure. The warm welcomes from all the staff even when their hands were full showed their true passion! The hours from 6 to 6:30 really fit into those early morning and late days we work sometimes. I couldn’t ask for a more giving group of ladies, they truly treat your child as one of their own! Even after a stay in the hospital with our infant, the ladies checked up on us and when we came back to daycare they made sure he had the special care he needed (as everyday since starting daycare)! I look forward to many years ahead as we both watch our little one grow into a child together! Family!"
“Talented Tots has been a wonderful choice for our family for the past 5 years. My daughter has learned so much during her time here thanks to the dedication and hard work of the staff and teachers. As a working parent there is nothing more reassuring than knowing your child is in good hands when you can't be with them. I can't say enough about how much I appreciate everyone at Talented Tots and care they have given my daughter. I would highly recommend if you are looking for a safe, clean, educational, and fun place for your kids."
“Every weekday I drop off my little guy with the utmost confidence that he will be taken great care of, entertained more than I ever could, developed and taught new things every day. And he will do all of this while having the time of his life. The teachers keep me updated on how he does daily, share any concerns, and truly care about him. As an added bonus I walk away with great artwork, gifts, and pictures from the day to cement this time in my memory and keepsake box. I couldn’t be happier and am so grateful to Talented Tots."
