Our Toddler Program uses hands-on exploration and social interaction in safe, engaging surroundings to help your child learn about his or her expanding world. Through the loving guidance of our teachers, toddlers enjoy learning experiences that promote their blossoming independence and social skills, and foster self-confidence.
Toddlers are filled with energy and increasing independence. They are developing quickly and are eager for knowledge and understanding of the world around them. Our program provides structure and guidance for your child to learn to share, get along with others and perform classroom tasks. Language and vocabulary skills are strengthened while listening to stories, singing songs, and playing games. Art projects and gross motor activities help to develop movement and sensory skills.
Your Toddler’s Day
Our Toddler Program is designed around shared learning experiences that stimulate and challenge your child each and every day. The structure of a typical day in the life of your toddler can include:
Group activities - Exploring books and singing songs.
Teacher-initiated activities - Like art or music and story time.
Child-directed activities - Participating in our Learning Centers.
Lunch and naptime - To nourish and rest your child’s growing mind and body.
Outdoor play - At least twice daily to burn off energy and develop motor skills.
We promote all areas of development in the following ways:
Large motor - encouraging movement through a variety of activities both indoors and out such as climbing, running, jumping, swinging, playing ball and other group activities
Small motor - activities that encourage hand eye coordination such as stringing beads, cutting, pasting, and block building
- provide creative movements, obstacles and group activities that encourage balance
Eye-hand coordination - encourage children to use toys, books, and tools
- providing choices, encouraging self motivation, and self help skills
Self Esteem - positive reinforcement and encouraging self-exploration through sharing of feelings, stories, and dramatic play.
