The children in the “Toddler World” classrooms range
in age from 18 months to three years old and are cared for by three
teachers. Activity centers are set up in classrooms, allowing the
children to choose activities which suit their own development,
learning styles, interests and needs.
The “Toddler World” staff is dedicated to providing
quality care for the children who are in the program. The program
provides for the development of the whole child - physical,
social/emotional, cognitive and language - in a safe and nurturing
environment. The activities are directed towards age and individual
appropriateness, allowing for all learning styles. The curriculum
is child-sensitive and tailored to meet the individual needs of
Our Toddler program allows for children to learn at their own
pace through active interactions with adults, peers and relevant
concrete/hands-on materials in a multi-cultural and inclusive
environment. Staff structure experiences and ask questions that
encourage children’s growth and creative thinking skills
based on child observations and development.
Toddlers learn through sensory, motor and tactile experiences.
Toddlers need to expand their language skills and develop a sense
of autonomy in a secure environment that helps them develop a sense
of trust. The program is designed to enhance self-esteem, extend
experiences and enrich children’s lives.
All schedules are flexible and subject to change based on the
ages and developmental needs of the children in the classroom. The
times listed are general, and allow time for transition and
self-selected activities. Meals are served family style and
children are encouraged to serve themselves, clean up and develop
other self-help skills.
