This is achieved by incorporating children’s literature, music & movement activities, arts & crafts. Our trained teachers are attentive to meeting the needs of your naturally curious and active toddlers. Our goal is to give your child everything they need to grow into a happy, healthy and successful individual. Our toddler program is designed to prepare your child with the skills necessary to enter our highly educational preschool program. We provide continuous opportunities for your child to grow physically, mentally and emotionally in a developmentally appropriate and friendly environment.
Our toddler program provides an environment which is filled with numerous opportunities for a child to learn through exploration. Areas of play are designed to encourage the children to use a variety of materials and learning equipment to initiate thinking and learning. Toys, surfaces, cribs, and changing tables are cleaned after every use with a two-step cleaning process; first with a natural cleaner then sanitized with a bleach solution. At the end of every business day the entire room is sanitized using an ULV fogger machine for disinfecting all surfaces. Our center is outfitted with an Ultraviolet lighting air system designed to filter all out all germs from the air circulated throughout the center.
Toddlers are becoming aware of how meaningful learning is and how useful the information they retain is used. They begin to develop problem solving skills and being independent. Our teachers use various activities to keep their minds stimulated. Our unique indoor play area, Kinder Town, gives each child the opportunity to play creatively.
At the age of two, a child’s language development is rapidly growing. They will evolve from two- or three-word phrases to full four- or five-word sentences. Our teachers use various tactics to encourage each child to communicate properly such as answering and responding when they are spoken to. At circle time, each child is given the chance to recite the alphabet, numbers, shapes, colors, days of the week and months of the year.
Social & Emotional Skills
Toddlers are truly beginning to acknowledge their own individual personality. Our teachers help each child cope with their emotions in an appropriate manner. Each classroom is made up of learning centers to help improve these skills by playing with others imaginatively and dramatically. Our teachers also encourage sharing, taking turns and positive communication between each other. We acknowledge all feelings and teach children how to respond to them so they can develop healthy relationships with others as they grow.
Fine/Gross Motor Skills
Toddlers develop their muscle growth with various motor skills. A toddler begins to properly feed himself/herself, walk up and down stairs, jump up and down and balance on one foot. Our teachers help strengthen motor skills by incorporating physical activities with daily tasks. Among the fine motor skills that are implemented, the children are working from left to right to set the foundation for reading and writing in the proper direction. Our teachers also promote the proper way to hold crayons, pencils, glue sticks and markers and incorporate hand gesture sequences into songs as well.
