ToDDLERS (2 years-3 years)
In the Young Toddler Classroom the children are introduced to a class routine. The routine is flexible and is adjusted to meet the needs of the toddlers. They begin to eat, sleep, and play at the same time. This schedule allows predictability and a feeling of security among the toddlers. The students are introduced to colors, numbers, shapes, and letters.Towards the middle of the year we begin to transition the toddlers from bottles to sippy cups. The children are encouraged to play cooperatively with their peers and the teachers continuously praise and model appropriate behavior. The students are nurtured and comforted throughout the day.
