Toddler Program
(18 months – age 3)

The Purpose of Our Program is to:

 

  • Develop & build the foundation for a strong independent personality
  • Assist and supervise the natural development of each child

 

Curriculum Overview

Language

  • Develop and master vocabulary through sensorial materials & phonetic material
  • Explore storytelling
  • Cultivate pre-reading skills

 

Math

  • Investigate hands on, concrete material and exercises
  • Complete a basic introduction to qualitative and quantitative concepts, including numeral recognition

 

Art

  • Express individual creative ideas with the use of various art materials
  • Sensorially explore material and media, rather than creating a product

 

Music

  • Experiment with playing instruments as well as waving scarves and other props – toddlers love songs that require physical responses
  • Bring the joy of music into the classroom through movement, participation, and hands-on experimentation with musical instruments
  • Promote important skills in literacy, math, and physical/social development through music

 

Practical life tasks*

  • Foster skills in self-care
  • Learn the importance of environmental care
  • Assist with cleaning
