Toddler One Classroom:
The Toddler One is our waddler/toddler classroom! Within this classroom, teachers assist with language development and encourage free play. Our ladybugs practice following simple directions and develop self-help and language skills. These wonderful skills are learned through hands-on play-based activities. These students participate in a variety of large-motor, small-motor, and sensory activities to help nurture all their developing skills.
Toddler Two Classroom:
In Toddler Two classroom, children learn and explore through a variety of age and developmentally-appropriate hands-on activities to encourage development. This class participates in a brief circle time each day where they read stories, sing songs, and learn about letters, numbers, shapes, and more! These students do a variety of arts and crafts to develop small motor skills, participate in a weekly dance class and take nature walks to nurture their large motor development.
In this preschool class, teachers will begin to guide students to develop complex skills such as holding scissors, using writing utensils, and completing/engaging in difficult puzzles and games. Circle time includes story time (with questions and answers), singing, and talks about the weather as well as the calendar. Students will begin to work on literacy and number sense to prepare them for Kindergarten.
