When infants and toddlers are appropriately challenged in a nurturing, consistent and loving environment they will learn to trust and explore their surroundings. They will make new discoveries and develop a sense of self. They will become competent learners and caring human beings.
Through the use of The Creative Curriculum for Infants, Toddlers, and Twos our teachers are able to design a program where the children form warm relationships with teachers and caregivers, and begin to learn important skills and content and develop social skills.
Because children do not master a skill all at once, our teachers set up their classroom and structure their day to provide different types of experiences for the children and to meet the needs of children at all developmental levels. Your child will learn such skills as pushing and pulling objects, turning and bending, sorting objects by color and size, exploring the concept of big and little, and building an early vocabulary.
Our teachers guide learning through routines and experiences while maintaining an environment that is responsive to the individual care and needs of infants and toddlers
