How Our Program Facilitates Development:
Toddlers have many opportunities throughout the day to explore their world inside and outside of the classroom. Toddlers will build on what they learned in an infant program. However their daily schedule will begin to be more structured, with activities in interest areas around the classroom and circle time. They will also be introduced to concepts such as but not limited to colors, shapes and sizes, numbers, letters, with an emphasis on building on their vocabulary and language skills, through balance of child centered as well as teacher directed activities. Toddlers will have opportunities to participate in a series of stimulating, explorative activities as a part of our daily routine.
