Creativity begins as a toddler. The smallest humans learn best through play.
Our Toddler Room provides a safe and nurturing environment that encourages discovery and growth. Your children ages 12 months to 2 ½ years old will have the freedom and ability to move and explore within an atmosphere of special understanding, support and respect.
Activities include self-help skills that lead the children to independence, encourage concentration and build self-esteem. These practical life activities involve sharing and being polite, personal care and hygiene, care of the environment, and control of movement. Toddlers practice dressing themselves, sweeping the floor, putting toys away and sharing snacks.
Sensorial activities, both indoors and outdoors, follow the toddlers’ urge to use their five senses and explore everything around them. Children order and identify objects, learn to discriminate carefully, and use appropriate vocabulary to describe their experiences.
"Growing Tree Academy Preschool & Childcare Center" appropriately accommodates the toddler’s sensitive period for language development by offering attractive and creative activities that help them build their growing vocabulary, both for listening and expressing themselves in words.
Children also experiment daily with creative art activities through a wide variety of media such as finger paint, watercolors, clay, chalk, pastels, collage, chunky pencils, etc.
The process of experimentation is emphasized over the end-result, which encourages creativity and self-expression. Toddlers love music; during circle time, they listen, sing, and reactto many types of popular and classical music. Action songs and finger-plays help them gain control of their voices and bodies.
Our toddler activities are innovative, fun activities that teachers do with the kids throughout the day. These games and activities are designed to encourage developmental skills in one and two year old. We also have nap times and nutritious meals and snacks. Toddlers enjoy the familiar rhythm of following a regular schedule every day. Your toddler will feel safe and secure in our center.
