The infant-toddler program offers our youngest children a unique year of self development in a tender atmosphere of special understanding, support, and respect.
The goal is to provide a specific structure which fulfills the social, physical, emotional, and psychological needs of each child. The toddler environment allows space for movement, individual work, and group activities. The design of the environment is proportionate to the child's size. The children in the toddler program are given the opportunity to develop skills in language, art, music, sensorial, and practical life.
The main emphasis of the toddler curriculum is in the Practical Life area. Here, the children are given the chance to develop skills to care for themselves and their environment, such as toilet training, control of movement, and respecting self and others. Through song and dance, and freedom of choice, the toddlers will have a variety of large muscle activities that offer them opportunities to crawl, climb, balance, jump, and skip.
