The shift to waddler hood

Toddlers are explorers. Their bodies let them walk and their hands can pick up small objects, push buttons, and push their friends! Even though they show strong feelings, they don't always know what they feel or why. Toddler are a joy to be with because they are little "sponges" soaking up information about everything they see and experience. They are not as dependent as infants and are interested in making choices on their own. Toddlers still need the close relationship with their caregivers. Our waddler teachers need special skills. They must help waddlers feel safe and secure as they explore both the environment and themselves. Our waddler teachers must be especially sensitive to toddler feelings, helping them cope with the disappointment and frustration that comes from the hard work of learning about their world and managinging their place and themselves.
