20 MONTHS - 3 YEARS
Toddlers learn with their whole body. They learn more through their hands by touching, their mouth by tasting and trying new things by themselves rather than being told. At this age children are very energetic and spend most of their waking moments exploring their environment.
They investigate objects with all their senses and learn by doing because it leads to thinking.
Our focus is to:
1- Help children to develop skills by watching them, directing them and providing the necessary tools that will help them to discover and develop their skills and talents.
2- Help children to be more independent.
3- Help children to be more social by allowing more outdoor activity, get more involved with the community by going on trips & community walks.
4- Help children to build their bodies by allowing more play and physical activity.
5- Nurture the children’s essential needs in a healthy, loving and caring environment that will help them to build a healthy and strong body.
Our program is perfect for active toddlers. We offer age-appropriate activities to let curious toddlers explore while building skills and coordination. The purpose of this program is to help children have a healthy and smooth transition from home to childcare settings. In the toddler room, the children are given the opportunity to explore and learn in a safe and stimulating environment. The furniture is age appropriate, which allows the children to carry out varies task independently, such as art & craft and eating. Each child has his / her own sleeping mat as a daily nap/rest time is required. The teachers provide guidance and assist children in the development of proper eating, dressing and toileting skills. Weekly activities are planned to meet the interests of each child and to encourage exploration, learning, and independence. As communication becomes more important, children are stimulated to develop language skills through songs, stories, and games. This helps to expand their vocabulary and expressive language. Group Circle time is always interactive to encourage each individual child’s participation. Sensory explorations through sand and water play are provided in the daily programs. Age appropriate, educational toys for toddlers are intended to initiate various concepts such as colors, shapes, numbers, and size. Both outdoor and indoor activities are provided with age-appropriate toys and equipment.
