Although there is a large variability amongst children, research shows that most toddlers are able to speak about 20 words by 18 months and about 50 words by the age of 2. OIC faculty is dedicated in assisting families to achieve those development milestones and triumphs. During this time, there is a huge growth spurt in language development an independence; we want to be able to guide your child in order to make this educational foundation as stable and secure as possible. Our teachers will develop the entire child; mind and body.
