Toddlers

The Best Practice Standards helps us define the amount of time and type of activities which must be available to the children throughout each day. Much thought and planning has gone into making the toddler class schedule match up with the quality rating system requirements. Children need a routine and will get through their day easier when they know what to expect, they are busy and their needs are met.

Toddlers are amazing. They are growing and developing in all areas very quickly. This age group requires a nurturing teacher with great energy, flexibility, patience, ability and vigilance. At this stage of their development, toddlers go through a range of emotions – one moment they want to be independent and do everything for themselves and the next moment want to be cuddled and want to be like the baby they once were. Our toddler program is separated into two classrooms; younger toddlers and older toddlers, ages fifteen months thru approximately twenty four months.
