Toddler Program

Our toddler program consists of two classrooms: the Ladybugs and the Bumblebees.

The Ladybugs are a group of younger toddlers who are just beginning to crawl and walk; who are learning and developing so rapidly, every day is different from the last. During this time in a child’s development, providing a variety of physical and cognitive learning experiences is essential. Therefore, the Ladybug classroom has a wide assortment of equipment and materials available to challenge each child at every level of their development. A daily record of your toddler’s activities is kept and provided at pick-up.

The Bumblebees are a group of older, highly mobile toddlers. These toddlers are forming their first words, experimenting with trial-and-error to solve problems, and learning to function as a part of a group. In this classroom, a flexible classroom schedule is implemented and the children participate in a variety of planned large and small group, as well as one-on-one, activities. All the excitement is recorded on a daily chart, and given to you at pick-up each evening.

Our toddler program has four goals for your child: to learn about himself and others; to learn about moving; to learn about the world; and to learn about communicating. Each of these goals has several objectives that include regulating own behavior, learning to be a member of a group, learning and understanding how objects can be used, and developing language skills. Our teachers use these goals and objectives to measure your child’s development and provide you with feedback. A complete list of these objectives can be found here: Infant, Toddler, and Two Year Old Program Goals (pdf)
