Toddlers Program

An industrious group, Toddlers excitedly investigate their world through observations and explorations.

Language skills are greatly expanded through group songs and finger plays, reading books, telling stories, and listening to tapes & CD’s. Emerging math skills are promoted through using manipulative toys and cooking. Water/sand sensory tables, nature walks, magnets and balances are some of the materials available to explore science areas. Drama and various art media such as finger painting, playdough cookie cutting, easel and chalk drawing spark interest in the world.

Toddlers need to feel as independent and important as they are. A positive reward system is key in molding self help / care skills such as toilet learning and use of hats/coats, hand washing and cleaning up after meals.

Large motor development is fostered through a variety of indoor and outdoor activities - dancing and climbing are two favorites. Fine motor skills such as stringing, scissor use and puzzle practice are facilitated daily.

Often, a Toddler’s view of his/her world can seem big and challenging. Social and emotional skills like sharing, taking turns, cooperative play and using language to convey needs and wants are supported by activities such as peer group games, shared centers and art projects.

Communication with families is key as Toddlers grow and mature. Daily activity forms are provided to illustrate what fun & exciting activities the children experienced. Weekly lesson plans and monthly newsletters also assist in reaching our goal of open, constant communication. Family-Teacher conferences are held twice a year to discuss the child’s development, as monitored with the Teaching Strategies Gold assessment program.
