"Little Sponges" soak up information about what they see and experience
Tremendous development takes place by the time toddlers move past their first 24 months. They can run competently, begin to speak in full sentences and become capable of naming preferences for foods or activities. They want to imitate the adults in their lives and use their expanded vocabulary to explore the world together with their peers.
Our Toddler program is filled with hands-on learning opportunities based on our philosophy that young children learn best through hands-on experiences. Through our curriculum focused on art expression, pretend and cooperative play along with many other research-proven activities of the Creative Curriculum®, our little sponges soak up information about everything they see and experience. Music play and daily physical movement form an integral part of the toddler curriculum.
Building Self-Reliance Skills
Our dedicated and talented Toddler teachers are here to help toddlers gain greater control of their bodies and learn self-reliance skills, such as serving their own meals, toilet training and performing other daily tasks with minimal or no assistance. Small group engagements throughout the day also allow teachers to cultivate children’s unique interests and develop problem-solving skills as toddlers interact with their peers and environment.
At about 18 months, a toddler’s spoken vocabulary explodes, adding new words at about one every two waking hours.
By age 6, children understand about 13,000 words (compared to an adult’s 60,000), though it usually doesn’t speak that many.
Babies whose parents talk to them frequently know 300 more words by age 2 than babies whose parents rarely speak to them.
