Older Toddlers

Stuck somewhere between babyhood and childhood, these curious kids are acquiring and enthusiastically using many new skills- most notable are language and motor control. This program is designed to focus on the continued development of social skills and education fundamentals. Here, the children begin to recognize their “school” as an environment filled with friends and opportunities for exploration. Daily small group instruction will focus on self help skills and allow for individual teachable moments. We strive for a perfect balance of nurturing, learning, and playtime by combining fun and engaging activities with quality care. Children will be exposed to a variety of activities designed to reach every kind of learner- sensory, auditory and kinesthetic experiences will be available throughout your child’s day. At this age, play is still characterized as parallel rather than interactive but social skills are nurtured through their growing independence and self-assertiveness. This age group flourishes in a supportive and safe environment where new skills can be practiced and mastered and where frequent, enthusiastic praise encourages further exploration. The children are assigned primary caregivers to assist with essential, everyday needs as the schedule becomes more uniform instead of individual in terms of feeding and sleeping.
