Wild Poppy Studio Preschool

Wild Poppy Studio offers a toddler program on Fridays from 9am-10:30am.

We ask that children are 16 months to 36 months old.

The maximum capacity of children at a time for the toddler program is 10. The ratio is always 1 teacher to 5 children along with a parent educator. One of the teachers is the director herself, Lauren Szelog. Lauren also teaches part-time in the preschool program.

Children are offered opportunities to explore amazing materials such as terracotta clay, palettes of watercolors, collage, music and more. Our toddlers are also a large part of caring for our garden.

The toddler program is designed to help children develop relationships with high-quality educational materials, their peers, and their teachers. We do this with high intention when arranging project provocations and ask ourselves, how will children connect over this?

A parent educator is available to connect with parents and talk about topics such as toilet learning, preschool readiness, sleep management etc. 

Wild Poppy Toddler Program also offers a transition process to help parents and children separate and prepare for preschool drop off. Lauren is very sensitive to both parents and children’s needs. It is a very slow transition that starts with 5 minutes and works its way to the point of you dropping off.

Wild Poppy Toddlers is very involved in the community and takes field trips every 5-6 weeks. Their field trips include Temescal Canyon and the Malibu Lagoons.

The schedule of the toddler program runs closely to the Malibu-Santa Monica school district calendar and is closed for 2 weeks during the Spring and 2 weeks in the winter.
