Curiosity and imagination are where learning begins. In our toddler classrooms, your child will turn play into meaningful learning experiences. Our well-balanced toddler program helps to boost children’s confidence as they explore the world around them through hands-on learning activities.
Our toddler program focus’ on self-soothing and self-regulation techniques, promoting independence, motor-skill development, and coordination, sensory activities and language. We strive for your toddler to develop trusting relationships with their teachers and peers alike. All our teachers are committed to responding to your child with compassion and kindness. They promote self-awareness and create consistent and predictable schedules for your toddler to follow. We offer activities and games that are designed to support your toddler’s muscle development and coordination. By doing so, we help your toddlers to master basic skills such as walking, running, hopping, jumping, kicking and balancing. Our toddlers explore concepts such as cause-and-effect, trial-and-error and problem-solving through intentional teaching and purposeful play. Your child will also explore new concepts through hands-on activities and building memory, reasoning and problem-solving abilities.
