Our Toddler Program
Although we follow the EEC’s definition of “Toddlers” as being children between the age of 1y3m and 2y9m, we have subdivided our room to better meet the needs of our younger toddlers who just learned to walk and our older toddlers who will move on to preschool soon.
The teacher to toddler ratio is 1:4 and 2:9. However, due to the size of the room, we will not have more than 15 children in this group.
This is the age that we start with age-appropriate circle time, teaching skills through play and songs.
Repetition of a daily schedule prevents confusion and surprise, making it easier to focus on the task.
A typical day in our toddler room can look as follows:
morning snack – free-play – circle time – breakfast – gross-motor activity (talking a walk, playing on our on-site playground or in our 2,500 sqft indoor-gym during winter or impending weather!) – project time – christian lesson including music and art – lunch – naptime – afternoon snack – gross-motor activity – free play – reading time.
What we do
Purposeful Play is Early Education!
Our curriculum is concepted with a monthly theme across the center which is taught differently according to age in each of our classrooms. The monthly plan is broken down to each single day, adressing all of the developmental areas in creative ways based on the concept of “learning through play”: social and self-help skills, gross- and fine-motor skills, language, and science.
During their time with us your child will learn to count, name colors and shapes, letters, music, and start building toward following simple instructions, and the potty.
Some examples of developmental milestones we look for carefully are the following:
