Your toddler’s day
Once the day gets going, kids participate in:
- Large-group learning to explore areas of daily life, weather, letter, numbers and colors
- Small-group learning, which expands on concepts shared in the large group and works to serve more individual needs
- Interest-based learning that helps toddlers make their own choices
- Several transitions (washing hands before a meal, stories before nap time, etc.) that form a predictable routine, which helps toddlers feel secure, learn and socialize. Through transitions. Children learn social skills and develop self-help abilities.
At the end of the day, our staff assists children in a smooth transition out of the classroom. You’ll get information and updates on how the day went for your toddler.
