Our toddler program offers three classrooms for children ages 12 months to 35 months. Our toddler programs provide a loving and nurturing environment where children learn to trust other adults and begin to develop friendships. The children may participate in a variety of creative, hands-on activities and new experiences, where they learn to discover and explore their world around them. The children enjoy singing, dancing, stories, talking, listening, cooking, painting, playing with toys, going outside, dramatic play and experimenting with different textures such as sand, water, cornmeal or shaving cream. The program is developmentally based, allowing the children to develop at their own pace. In addition, our excellent teacher-child ratios allow for one-on-one and small group activity.
TODDLER ONE AND TODDLER TWO
The children enrolled in the two younger toddler classrooms range in age from 12 months to 27 months. The classrooms are adjacent to each other and the environment is inviting to both children and adults. Soft cuddly areas, private spaces, climbing structures, blocks and manipulatives, sand and water tables, as well as floor space for group time are all provided. Teachers focus considerable attention on the child’s daily routines including arrivals and departures, diapering and toileting, eating, naptime, and dressing.
