Posted in each classroom is a board that each teacher fills out during the day explaining the activities that went on for that day so you can see what activities your child participated in. There are also monthly classroom schedules posted in each classroom with theactivities of each day. Please take the time to read the posted information. You can use this as a basis for talking with your child about their day!!
The toddlers are a time when children must learn the basics of life. Physically, they are learning to get dressed, to use the bathroom, to feed themselves, to pick up after themselves, etc.., Emotionally, learning to share, having fun with friends, parallel play and engaged play, learning about being a leader and working together etc..With the understanding that children are learning all the time, and not just when adults are ready to teach them, caregivers will work toward developing awareness that every interaction they have with toddlers is a learning situation. Our goals are designed to provide toddlers with the opportunities for independence, to develop language, to practice small and large motor development, and sensory skills, and to sample a variety of experiences and materials. For large muscle movement and outside activities, the toddlers make use of our play yard, guided walks, and the park.
