Toddlers acquire knowledge through active exploration. Our teachers facilitate growth by introducing structure as well as encouraging independent curiosity.
Vivvi™ Learning Model
Children enrolled in Vivvi learn through themes inspired by the questions they ask every day.
Our teachers observe each child's interests and organize projects and curriculum inspired by those interests. Teachers simultaneously align learning standards across multiple metacognitive, academic and physical skill sets.
Early Childhood Education Curriculum in Action
By observing and reflecting on children's interests, our faculty designs units of study aligned to developmentally appropriate learning standards.
Classroom Specific Curriculum (Webs)
Learning Domains + Developmental Milestones
Individualized care with attention to each toddler’s growth and development, and a schedule that balances structured activities and independent play.
A play-based curriculum built around classroom observations, with a focus on building identity and community, and helping children meet age-appropriate milestones.
Classrooms designed to encourage toddlers’ growing independence, while ensuring each child continues to feel safe and secure.
The safest, most up-to-date equipment and toys; and a commitment to safety, security, and cleanliness practices that meet or exceed state and local guidelines.

Meet Hali & Daryl, Vivvi Parents to Jackson (Toddler)
Vivvi is brought to life by passionate teachers with years of experience who foster children’s curiosity, development and a love of learning.
“Toddlers have passion and curiosity for everything! Every moment is a teachable moment. Toddlers are learning how to navigate the world every day and love to be independent. My favorite thing about working with them is their unconditional love for all teachers and the trust they are able to instill in us."
-- Alison E. - Toddler Teacher
