Our Toddler Program is designed to meet the individual needs of children from age 1. Communication Daily information charts are completed on each toddler. These charts will give you information about how your child has eaten, slept and diapering.
Toddler teachers provide a variety of developmentally appropriate activities and materials that are selected to emphasize concrete hands on learning and to achieve the following Toddler curriculum goals:
- To foster positive identity, and a sense of well-being
- To allow toddlers to feed themselves and encourage their development of self-help skills when ready
- To develop social skills by encouraging language development and redirecting toddlers to help guide them toward controlling their own behavior
- To encourage toddlers to think, reason, question and experiment
- To provide an appropriately challenging, safe environment for toddlers to explore and manipulate
- To provide daily opportunities for exploratory activity indoors and outdoors
- To encourage toddlers’ attempts at language
- To enhance toddlers’ physical development and skills
- To encourage and demonstrate sound health, safety and nutritional practices
- Diaper changing, toilet training, eating and dressing are viewed as vital learning experiences
- To encourage creative expression, representation and appreciation for the arts
- Toddlers are expected to explore and manipulate art materials, not create a product
Parents know immediately what their kiddo is doing during the day. They don’t have to wait for the end of the day to find out what happened. They can connect to their account anytime using the daily connect app, whether they are at work, at home or away on a trip. It reduces the anxiety of being away from the child not knowing what’s happening. You can also use Daily Connect for free when browsing the web at http://www.dailyconnect.com
