Our toddler program is very similar to our infant program with helping you child grow and develop. Music, puppets and sign language are very much a part of the curriculum for children under two years of age. Our toddler program emphasizes language development, coordination skills, self directed activities, sensory development and self help skills.
Toddlers are given many opportunities throughout the day to explore their surroundings. Our teachers facilitate this exploration by offering age appropriate toys, manipulatives, books, and experiences to your child. We can share with you ideas for activities that you and your child can do together at home to help reinforce what they are learning at Child’s Play.
The toddler program stresses the importance of nurturing, security and love. While still focusing on the individual child, we introduce cooperation and sharing among friends. Teachers act as facilitators and role models during social interactions.
Child's Play will provide your child with a crib (12 months or younger) or a cot for napping. We also provide the bedding, such as sheets and blankets. If you prefer, you may bring in a small blanket for your child. If your child needs a security item, please bring it into the center so that your child may rest more comfortably.
