Two Year Old Room

 

Age 2 (by October 15)

 

Our Toddler program maintains a four-to-one ratio with a maximum group size of twelve, and is designed to provide an opportunity for toddlers to explore while addressing the very specific needs, challenges, and delights of this particular age group. There is an emphasis on freedom of movement and gross/fine motor development as well as the child to child interactions. The children in this group are becoming more aware of each other and social play is becoming more complex. The teachers support these interactions. The daily curriculum offers toddlers opportunities to explore the environment according to their capabilities, interests and developmental needs.
