Children are grouped in classrooms based on their ages, with trained teachers and therapists who specialize in teaching developmentally appropriate curriculum  to each age group. Per California licensing laws, children have separate classrooms and play spaces according to age.  


Storyteller Children’s Center serves toddlers from 18 through 36 months. The toddler program includes a variety of curriculum that builds on the child’s natural curiosity and enhances and develops the toddler’s social-emotional, linguistic, physical, and creative development.

Scholarships for our Toddler Program is made possible by the William and Lottie Daniel Child Care Fund
and the Santa Barbara Foundation
