In our Toddler program, children are ages 13 months to 2 1/2 years of age, and are now upright; walking, eating table foods and taking only one nap a day. They are on a schedule where their friends are doing the same type of activities at the same time. Our program focuses on the following developmental areas: physical, emotional, social and cognitive, and our educated teachers follow a professionally developed curriculum called Mother Goose Time. In addition, children will be able to use their newly discovered independence skills as they explore their environment. Staff will encourage children to use self-help skills as they guide and teach them each day Routines are essential at this age to help children predict the events that will occur during the day. Consistent limits are set for children so they can determine boundaries.
