WHEN THEY BEGIN TO EXPLORE JUST BEYOND OUR REACH

This is it, it’s time to start letting a go. Not a lot, just a tiny bit. We get it, we’re parents too, it’s the hardest thing in the world to get help, but if you’re going to do it, this age is a great time to start.

This is the age when your child will want to gain a sense of autonomy and independence, but they need help getting there. Our job is to support you in raising a self-sufficient toddler

At a comfortable pace, teachers encourage our little people to become self-reliant with no pressure or frustration. Fostering independence, we provide our young 2s with tools to deal with the challenging transition from baby stage to toddlerhood.

Modeling healthy ways to say goodbyes in the morning helps both parent and child gradually heal the sadness of separation. Freshman room teachers therefore focus on providing a soothing and comforting environment to ease anxieties with entertaining distractions or much needed TLC.

Classrooms become secure environments that facilitate a healthy sense of self by having toddlers explore on their own terms and timeframe.

A Montessori-like approach to attaining practical skills such as changing clothes, brushing teeth, putting on shoes, brushing hair, or wiping a table, jumpstarts a wonderful path to self-care.

Without micromanaging or demanding perfection, our toddler classroom is led by a calm influence that allows spills free of criticism and consistent praise.

FROM SAYING HELLO TO GOODBYE, CLEANING UP, AND POTTY TIME, WE’RE SUPPORTING YOUR EFFORTS IN TEACHING THEM TO COMMUNICATE

We encourage our toddlers to build communication skills with teachers and peers to nourish their confidence. True learning during this vulnerable developmental stage takes place when the teacher successfully builds a relationship with each toddler.

As everyone deserves and needs to be heard, toddlers struggle with their growing awareness and desire to communicate hampered by their inability to be understood.

Our patient teachers will get down to eye level, and truly listen to what our little people have to say. We show them that their words are important and this eventually radiates an invaluable confidence to use their language skills.

From good morning greetings, nursery rhymes, to cleanup songs, music fills our day and engages our toddlers. The life of a toddler can be best summarized as a musical under production!

We extend the fundamentals with discussions about the weather, holidays, or the daily calendar provide meaning and context to their new skills.

As their little eyes light up for story time, this daily activity builds valuable communication skills, including sounds and language structure.

Small group play through creative stations and art require working alongside the teacher and peers and allows them to practice dialogue.

Yep, all that chatter is critical to their development, even if we our adult ears only understand a small part of it!

GOODBYE DIAPERS, HELLO PULL-UPS! INTRODUCTION TO GOING POTTY…

One of early life’s biggest challenges is learning to use the toilet.

Although we want to hold onto to every age and freeze the moment as they grow so fast, this is also one of the milestones that parents truly enjoy (though not GETTING through it!). We’re here to not only share the burden with parents, but offer our parents support through it as well.

Though success is a team effort between the child, the school, and parents, our eager teachers take charge so not to overwhelm parents during such a critical coming of age.

There is no ‘right’ age to be potty trained, yet we make a huge effort to spot signs of readiness and effectively communicate them to our parents.

Observing when peers use the bathroom, talking about wanting grown up undies, and showing a general curiosity are sure signs of potty maturity.

Our supportive teachers understand that every child has a unique experience and encouragement is a must to get to the next stage. Patience and positivity help ease the incredible pressure that some parents feel and relieve any stress that trickles down to the child.

We fully recognize that at this stage, our little ones will have their own timeline, so introducing potty-time as a fabulous adventure with picture books, songs and fun rewards, is a sure path to success.

CREATIVE INTRODUCTION TO LITERACY AND NUMERACY: FUN WITH LETTERS, NUMBERS, SHAPES & COLORS

In our toddler class, attention spans are short. We therefore creatively make learning numbers, letters and shapes an engaging and playful journey!

Focusing on reading strategies, teachers repeatedly point to letters all around us, use large story-time picture books and anchor posters.

Young 2s are actively learning through various art projects and sensory activities such as finding objects in sand, stamping on paper, sorting magnets and many more.

Prewriting strategies such as finger-tracing and painting occupy our busy toddlers by pointing out different features of each letter, number and shape and aid retention.

Linguistic awareness is refined by pointing out words that start with repetition of similar sounds in nursery rhymes & daily songs.
