Toddlers & Twos

18 months - 3 years

Our toddler program understands that your child is beginning to express his identity. He is concerned with himself and his needs, yet curious about the world around him. He wants to hold on as well as let go. Our teachers realize that this is the most critical learning time in a young child's life. In fact, a child takes in more information between the ages of one to six years than they do all the remainder of their life.

We understand that the brain matures in the world and that young children are deeply affected by their early experiences. Their relationships with parents and other caregivers and the sights, sounds, smells and feelings they encounter daily all play a role in brain development. Early experiences help to determine brain structure, thus shaping the way that people learn, think and behave for the rest of their lives.

In our toddler classroom you can expect:
  • An active reading program that allows children to be involved in the story and talk about their experiences and pictures.
  • A schedule that provides time and space for activity play such as jumping, running, balancing, climbing, dancing and exercising.
  • Musical activities such as singing, listening to music, dancing and playing instruments.
  • Age appropriate activities planned daily to enhance and promote each child's pattern of growth and development.
  • A learning curriculum based on a theme of the week, a letter, number, shape and color.
  • A classroom filled with blocks, puzzles, manipulative toys, books, musical instruments, dramatic play items and art materials.
  • Activities for labeling, classifying and sorting objects by shape, color and size.
  • Warm, loving and responsive caregivers.
  • Caregivers who will listen and respond to children with attention and respect.
  • Caregivers who encourage children to use language, safe exploration and play.
