toddler program

program & curriculum

 

Our Toddler Program addresses the social, emotional, physical and cognitive needs of each child. We use hands-on exploration and social interaction to help your child learn about his or her expanding world. The Toddler Room is specifically designed to meet the physical and emotional needs of  children approximately 14 months to 2 years old. The activities, manipulatives, art projects, climbing structure and outdoor equipment are selected specifically for this age group.

 

Social-Emotional: A primary focus is on teaching and reinforcing basic and important social skills, such as sharing, self-help, expressing empathy and being a good friend. We support children’s emotional development with activities that build confidence in their growing abilities, promoting self-esteem and independence.

Physical Development: Children are encouraged to be children! For gross motor skill development, we offer an array of well-designed, age-appropriate and safe play structures and equipment (rockers, bikes, cars). To aid in fine motor skill development, we provide manipulatives, and other classroom tools and activities.

Our teachers develop and value a relationship with the whole family. By getting to know each child and their family in a unique way, teachers are better equipped to meet each toddler’s individual needs.
