Exploring Wonder and New Horizons with Toddlers
19 month – 2.5 years
We believe the very best way to support and develop our infants is to provide what they need, starting with caring and attentive caregivers. Our team strives to provide an environment that is safe, interesting to explore, and filled with caregivers who respond to your baby’s physical, emotional, and intellectual needs. We connect with each infant by sharing hugs, singing, reading, and talking to them. Educational and developmentally appropriate activities are provided to create an exciting environment for babies to develop their potential for future learning. Expanding the imagination and development of our infants has never been more exciting!
Around 18 months most children begin to have the ability to control their bladder. In our toddler program we begin to introduce the concept of potty training. We work on the fine motor and gross motor aspect of changing clothes. As they see a potty while they are changing their diaper it helps to connect the action with the place. We encourage your toddler to try to use the potty. We work with parents to help achieve the goal of potty training them. There are different techniques used that depend on your child’s personality on which one will work with them. Introducing potty training early helps give the child more time to potty train without delaying being potty trained.
The Four Essential Learning Domains for Our Toddler Program Includes:
- Physical Development
- Cognitive Development
- Language Development
- Social and Emotional Development
Our Toddler Program also includes:
- Learning centers that provide meaningful child-initiated learning activities
- Storytime to introduce early literacy
- Outdoor play and activities designed to coincide with physical development
- Potty training with a positive approach is promoted.
- Daily reports and weekly lesson plans to keep you informed of your child’s development
- Parent Letters that provide activities to do at home that reinforce what they learn at school.
The connection between home and school benefits the child greatly. This connection helps build better academic success and social skills. Reinforcing what they learn at school at home is the best way to see your child succeed. We use the Seesaw app to make that home and school connection easier. Through this app we send pictures, notes, dailies and parent letters.The parent letters are activities to do at home to reinforce what is worked on at school.
