Our Toddler Program

1 year old - 2 years old

Toddlers will intuitively discover concepts, learn language, solve simple problems, develop muscle control, and learn self-care skills as they explore specially designed materials. Activities are positioned around the room so that toddlers may choose among them. They are free to explore and are given the time they need to complete whatever they start. The activities allow toddlers to experience sequence, form, shape, movement, and sound-and the offerings evolve as the children grow physically, emotionally, and intellectually. Furniture and learning materials are child-sized. Everything needed to complete tasks and achieve success is accessible.

Kinder Prep Toddler curriculum at this level is focused on activities that adapt to the changing curiosities and individual characteristics of each child. Toddler develop concepts such as space, self, and surroundings, through movement and music. The toddler classrooms are setup to offer a variety of unique experiences for children. Each section of the classroom offers a different activity choice for our toddlers.
