The toddler programs strive to help every young child:

  • develop personal relationships with new people
  • foster self-awareness
  • engage and understand the world around them

Our low adult/child ratio (1:4) allows the individual attention these young learners need to safely explore and grow in the classroom community. Together with our nurturing staff, we sing, dance, play, read and explore our school surroundings. We continually work different themes (i.e. Families, Seasons, Things That Go, etc) into our routine of play-based learning.

Some of the year’s learning goals include:

  • a focus on self-regulation
  • express feelings with words
  • self-help skills, such as washing and drying hands, drinking from a cup, attempting to put on own shoes, jacket, etc.
  • Problem-solving skills
  • sit in a chair during meals and snacks
  • grasp eating and writing utensils
  • jump with both feet
  • name and identify different body parts
  • sing along with familiar songs and finger plays
  • encourage creativity, self-expression, and the use of the five senses
