Our Toddler Program welcomes children 15 months of age to 36 months of age. After the age of 30 months, a child may transition to the early childhood program. Transition times depend on readiness and space availability.
Each of our toddler environments is prepared with developmentally appropriate materials and activities that support the child’s natural development. The two main areas of focus in this program are the development of language and learning the skills for independence and social interaction.
Language development occurs through singing songs, listening to stories, classifying objects, and meaningful conversation.
Toddlers are driven to be independent so we allow them a lot of daily practice with preparing snack, washing dishes, watering plants, pouring, and dressing themselves.
We help toddlers with problem-solving and identifying their emotions and feelings. They also learn to take care of their environment by putting away their own belongings and putting the materials they are working on back on the shelf.
There are many opportunities for toddlers to move their bodies through dancing, running, jumping, and climbing.
