Piglets, Poohs and Tiglets
The curriculum our toddlers engage in daily emphasizes exploration and exercise. The teachers work hard to prepare your child for a more structured classroom environment. Children at this age, oftentimes, are at very different developmental levels. Our teachers recognize that their toddler curriculum must provide a variety of activities with which to reach each child’s individual, developmental needs. They provide a well-balanced program involving many active, gross motor activities and plenty of opportunities for the little ones to investigate and discover the world around them. It is important for our little ones to practice the important self-help skills necessary to grow socially and emotionally while gaining self-confidence along the way!
