This includes touch, smell, sight, sound and taste. But it also covers movement, balance, and spatial awareness. When a child is born, their senses aren't fully developed.
Music & Movement
Enables children to learn new words and concepts through activities such as chanting rhymes, creating sounds using household items and singing songs to learn the alphabet.
Story Time can be one of the most impactful learning experiences a child could have, in part because they naturally make sense of their world through both story and play.
Early Literacy Development
Early literacy is learning about sounds, words and language. Children develop and learn best through everyday, fun activities like singing, talking and games.
Schedule. Toddlers thrive on routine.
Our schedule is designed to promote social, emotional, and physical development. We balance structured activities and free play through a 90-minute class where toddlers will learn cooperation and develop motor skills while engaging in what they perceive to be play time.
Our teachers are very sensitive to any transitional difficulty. By the end of the program toddlers will be ready for the next step in their education having learned to follow directions within a group and understanding the classroom rhythm.
Parents are encouraged to pack their toddlers a snack.
Environment. Our welcoming atmosphere.
Toddlers need a safe and nurturing environment to explore and learn. We use child-friendly furniture and equipment in a space designed to encourage exploration, movement, and imaginative play.
Our teachers and staff create positive relationships with children and families.
Toddlers benefit from a strong partnership between parents and teachers. Our program fosters open communication with families in our positive and safe environments.
Teachers will conduct regular check-ins, provide progress reports, and parent-teacher conferences to keep families informed of their child's development.
Ages 24 - 36 Months
