TODDLERS

toddler-sm12 MONTHS - 3 YEARS
Toddlers make great developmental strides from first steps to potty-training and our teachers are right there to provide support in a fun and active environment. Energetic teachers plan activities to encourage a toddler's eager investigation of the world. Teachers plan days filled with a balance of quiet activities, spirited music and movement, plenty of outdoor climbing, running and jumping.

Young toddlers in our Toddler 1 room play and learn in an environment with lots of opportunities for independent exploration. Finger play, stories and songs are incorporated into each day to foster a toddler's awareness of the world around them. For our older toddlers in our Toddler 2 room, the emphasis is socialization and the acquisition of self-help skills, particularly potty training. Activities such as circle time are introduced to encourage verbal and social growth. In addition, toddlers are practicing hand washing, putting on their coats, picking up their toys and sharing with their friends.
