Our Toddler room provides an environment that encourages the child to work, build concentration and establish a joy of learning. It is a place where the child’s basic needs are being met which enables the toddler to create their own self-image and character development:
Gregariousness: Each classroom has a dramatic play area where a child is in group/plays with others.
Exploration: Our daily schedule is made up of a variety of activities that allows a child to experiment using his body and mind.
Communication: Our toddler teachers have sharpened their skills in observation and are able to interpret and respond to non-verbal communication. They also make sure that children hear words through conversations, storytelling, and songs rhymes. Specially designed work on the shelves introduces the toddler to the letters of the alphabet and their sounds.
Movement: Music and creative movement activities and outdoor play is always part of the daily schedule.
Community/Work: Participation in school presentations and events gives the toddler the opportunity to work with a group like community.
Repetition: The work on the shelves encourages the toddler to do it over and over again. Our daily routine also contributes to this need.
Concentration: The structure of the classroom allows a child to work uninterrupted, as there are individual tables. There is also a reading corner where a toddler can sit quietly looking at books. Teachers have also been trained to protect the concentration of any child.
Exactness: Challenging work is always available next to the simplified ones on the shelves.
Perfection: Learning activities and situations are created to assist the child to perceive his own errors and correct them. The toddlers are left to do their own activities.
Imitation: Teachers are very careful on how they act and use words as a toddler does not just observe her surroundings, but rather she becomes them by age three. The teachers practice absolute consistency in their words and actions.
Independence: The classroom structure allows the child freedom of movement, choice and development within an ordered and prepared environment. The teachers establish the ground rules for the good of each individual within the group setting.
Self Control: Children get to practice dealing with other toddlers challenging them. Teachers watch for such behaviors and get to correct them right away. Expressions are taught to nicely stop others from hurting them.
