Toddler Care & Education
Your toddler’s brain, body and abilities continue to develop at a rapid pace from the age of 1 ½ to 3. Our curriculum provides an environment where sensory-motor exploration is combined with dramatic play, creative arts and fitness activities to meet every area of development. Toddlers need to move their bodies and they love to dance and sing. Walking, running and climbing on our outdoor and indoor play areas are favorite activities.
Language experiences for toddlers are rich in play and imagination. We read stories, talk, play games, sing and make music together. Our Spanish language program exposes your child to the sounds and vocabulary of a second language and lays the foundation for language learning later on. Toddlers’ emerging abilities to communicate allow them to be more skilled at making their needs known and help them to interact with others. We continue to teach and use sign language and encourage parents to do so at home.
Children of sixteen (16) months and older, entering the toddler group still need individualized help for feeding. Nap times are important for growing toddlers and our teachers are there to help when it might be hard to fall asleep. Our teachers also help your child develop new toileting habits with potty training, and other self-help skills during the course of the day such as washing hands. You always know how the day went and what is going on in the room with our daily messages and your child’s daily summary.
