In brief: Yes

Strep throat is a contagious disease, and altho not as common in toddlers, it still may occur. Wash hands and try to avoid close contact( i know it is hard).

In brief: Strep throat

It is less likely for a child under 2 to get strep throat, but certainly possible to catch from close contacts.
