Toddler (2-3 y/o)

The main goal for the children in the toddler classroom is to develop and practice independence, from care of self and the environment to independently choosing and working on activities. Children practice valuable life skills through a number of activities in different areas:

1. Practical life - These basic skills are the foundation for all other development. We provide activities that develop order, coordination, concentration, and independence. Through practicing practical life exercises using familiar objects found within the home, children develop the eye-hand coordination necessary for reading and writing, build self-confidence, and social skills.

2. Sensorial - activities that isolate and refine the senses; embody abstract concepts in a concrete form; prepare the child for reading, writing, and math; and develop an internal sense of order.

3. Cognitive -  activities that provide the twos with opportunities to extend concentration, develop logic, and practice fine motor skills.

4. Motor - developing hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills. The children also practice gross motor skills and this increases body awareness.

5. Social - developing self-confidence, language skills, practicing social interactions, and practicing routines and manners. The children develop skills in recognizing and describing emotions in themselves and others.
