Broadway And Movie Star Lachanze Lends Her Voice To Smarter Toddler School's First T V Commercial

Friday, September 16, 2011

Smarter Toddler Nursery and Preschool in New York City is honored to have Broadway and movie star LaChanze perform the voiceover for the School's first TV Ad.

"Smarter Toddler is considered a first class early childhood program," said Jessica Collins, spokesperson for Smarter Toddler Schools. "So it is fitting and absolutely wonderful that we have a first class award-winning performer like LaChanze to do the voiceover on our first TV Commercial".

The 30 second Smarter Toddler TV ad which was produced by Speak Media, debuted on the popular NY1 (New York One), a New York based cable TV channel owned by the Time Warner Cable Network. Since both Smarter Toddler locations are full with a 1 year wait list, the TV Ad was created not to increase enrollment but to promote the school's Franchising Program which starts later this year.

"LaChanze has been a friend of Smarter Toddler for a few years," continued Ms. Collins. "She first collaborated with us in 2010 for Smarter Toddler's fundraiser for Haiti earthquake relief in which she was the headline act. We are lucky and much honored to have her work with us again".

About Smarter Toddler: Smarter Toddler Nursery and Preschool is a premier arts-based early childhood brand founded in New York City. Smarter Toddler accepts students from 3 months to 6 years old for an all day or part day program. The first school began in 2003 by parents of gifted toddlers who wanted a progressive preschool with an advanced art and music focused curriculum from which their own children could benefit. It has been proven that a child's brain is like a dry sponge capable of absorbing knowledge at a much faster rate than an adult's. As a result, at Smarter Toddler, you"�re never too young to begin learning. Smarter Toddler has often been called the "first designer daycare" because of the unique art and antiques that decorate the centers.
