Our Toddler Program provides toddlers with opportunities to learn and explore. The major developmental goal for our toddlers is promoting gross motor skills. The room is well arranged and equipped (indoor slide and tunnel) to give access to free movement. The room has developmentally appropriate inventory, including toys to promote cognition, socio-emotional skills, creativity as well as physical literacy. The classroom is organized into learning centers to engage children in learning through play while building independence.
Our staff communicates with parents to ensure we are working together on important milestones such as language acquisition and speech development, potty training, fine and gross motor skills, and ensuring our children’s daily needs are met. We utilize the emergent curriculum to guide a child’s natural curiosity into meaningful learning experiences and promote social skills (i.e. sharing, toddler manners). Teachers utilize authentic assessment tools to document daily observations, develop new learning opportunities, and ensure the progression of development and learning.
