Toddlers are a very special group of children who are most unique! We further enhance that uniqueness by offering a low teacher/child ratio, allowing optimal time for positive interaction between the teacher and toddler. This is essential for bonding and building self-esteem. Psychologists state that proper bonding is a prerequisite for building sound relationships that will last a lifetime. Individual development and growth are key concepts in our toddler program. All children are given opportunities to build their fine and gross motor skills through exploration of the environment.
Developmentally appropriate toys and equipment enhance the learning environment to continue development of cognitive, social, emotional and physical skills. Language, emergent math, and Brain Power activities are incorporated into the daily routine and plan. Curriculum is built around monthly themes, often initiated by the children.
We offer activities for toddlers to explore their world through art, music, and creative movement in a challenging and stimulating environment. Art activities are planned to highlight the artistic process rather than the product. Children draw, paint, and color without the use of models or worksheets, which often stifle their creativity. Self-help skills such as feeding, potty training, dressing, independence and self-confidence are fostered in our young toddlers.
