Our Toddler Program is designed to encourage and prepare your child for preschool.
We understand that our toddlers are on-the-go, active and curious! Our Toddler Program ensures the learning happens in a safe and nurturing environment where they can play and explore the world around them.
The Toddler lesson plans are based on the Creative Curriculum and include many projects and play-based lessons that promote their social and academic development. The Toddlers will also learn their letters, sounds, numbers and practice fine and gross motor skills. They will begin to develop social, problem-solving and self-help skills.
Our classroom is designed to make sure our little ones have plenty of space to move around and explore. The Learning Centers are designed so the child can actively engage and indulge in creative play and discovery.
Our Learning Centers for Purposeful Play & Discovery:
DRAMATIC PLAY CENTER– Creative and imaginative play is an integral part of the developmental learning process. It allows children to develop social/emotional, physical, cognitive, and language skills. Our dramatic play has a variety of props to encourage creative expression and imagination like dress-up clothes, pretend play kitchen sets, puppets and more.
SCIENCE CENTER – Science play provides abundant opportunities for children to learn science concepts and deepen their understanding of the world around them. Our Science area includes a variety of science tools, materials, and collections for children to explore. Toddlers also have fun with hands-on science experiments!
LIBRARY & WRITING CENTER – Toddlers learn about reading through adults. Their library contains child favorites and books read aloud by teachers. Through this practice, they learn that books are special and contain interesting pictures and stories.
